Meeting at the crossroads : women's psychology and girls' development by Lyn Mikel Brown( Book )
22 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,927 libraries worldwide
Lyn Mike Brown and Carol Gilligan ask "What, on the way to womanhood, does a girl give up?" One hundred girls gave voice to what is rarely spoken and often ignored: that the passage out of girlhood is a journey into silence and disconnection, a troubled crossing when a girl loses a firm sense of self and becomes tentative and unsure. These changes mark the edge of adolescence as a watershed in women's psychological development and the stories the girls tell are by turns heartrending and courageous. Listening to these girls provides us with the means of reaching out to them at this critical time, and of better understanding what we as women and men may have left behind at our own crossroads
The birth of pleasure by Carol Gilligan( Book )
33 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 1,312 libraries worldwide
Tracing a lineage from Greek mythology to our own most intimate relationships, Carol Gilligan asks why, generation after generation, we relive tragic stories of loss and betrayal, and sets out to create a radical new map of love. Within the sweep of this book, Gilligan takes us through novels and dreams, ancient legends and contemporary research to an illumination of modern couples in crisis. She shows us that, although the women's movements of the 20th century have challenged patriarchal structures, the underlying patterns remain: the early channeling of boys into "masculinity, " the double consciousness of girls in adolescence, the silences between men and women, the splits between our social and inner selves. In the haunting love story of Psyche and Cupid, Gilligan discovers a crucial tale of resistance--showing us that the path of pleasure can be found in the heart of tragedy, that joy and harmony can defy anger and pain

Between voice and silence : women and girls, race and relationship by Jill McLean Taylor( Book )
14 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,159 libraries worldwide
"More than any other psychologist, Carol Gilligan has helped us to hear girls' voices just when they seem to be blurring and fading or becoming disruptive during the passage into womanhood. When adolescent girls - once assured and resilient - silence or censor themselves to maintain relationships, they often become depressed, and develop eating disorders or other psychological problems. But when adolescent girls remain outspoken it is often difficult for others to stay in relationship with them, leading girls to be excluded or labeled as troublemakers. If this is true in an affluent suburban setting, where much of the groundbreaking research took place, what of girls from poor and working-class families, what of fading womanhood amid issues of class and race? And how might these issues affect the researchers themselves? In Between Voice and Silence, Taylor, Gilligan, and Sullivan grapple with these questions. The result is a deeper and richer appreciation of girls' development and women's psychological health."--Jacket
Making connections : the relational worlds of adolescent girls at Emma Willard School by Carol Gilligan( Book )
14 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 1,101 libraries worldwide
"In 1981, with the support of the Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge Foundation, Emma Willard School undertook a groundbreaking study of adolescent female moral development in conjunction with Harvard psychologists Carol Gilligan and Nona Lyons. In addition to mapping new territory in the field of moral psychology, the Dodge Study was the first collaboration between a school and a team of scholars to pursue such research. The essays that grew out of the Dodge Study and appear in this volume represent, in Carol Gilligan's words, 'a series of exercises en route to a new psychology of adolescence and women.' As she also writes in the book's prologue, 'The observant twelve-year-old girl knows something that the adult woman has forgotten. As the river of a girl's life flows into the sea of Western culture, she is in danger of drowning or disappearing.' The Dodge Study begins to reveal the process in which that twelve-year-old changes into an adult woman."--Book jacket

Joining the resistance by Carol Gilligan( Book )
8 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and held by 685 libraries worldwide
"In her new book Joining the Resistance Carol Gilligan reflects on the evolution of her thinking and shows how her key ideas were interwoven with her own life experiences. Her work began with the question of voice: who is speaking to whom, in what body, telling what stories about which relationships? By listening carefully she heard a voice that had been held in silence, and in the process realized the extent to which we - both women and men - had been telling false stories about ourselves."--Jacket
When boys become boys : development, relationships, and masculinity by Judy Y Chu( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 582 libraries worldwide
"When Judy Y. Chu first encountered the four-year-old boys we meet in this book, they were experiencing a social initiation into boyhood. They were initially astute in picking up on other people's emotions, emotionally present in their relationships, and competent in their navigation of the human social world. However, the boys gradually appeared less perceptive, articulate, and responsive, and became more guarded and subdued in their relationships as they learned to prove that they are boys primarily by showing that they are not girls. Based on a two-year study of boys aged four to six, When Boys Become Boys offers a new way of thinking about boys' development. Chu finds that behaviors typically viewed as "natural" for boys reflect an adaptation to cultures that require boys to be emotionally stoic, competitive, and aggressive if they are to be accepted as "real boys." Yet even as boys begin to reap the social benefits of aligning with norms of masculine behavior, they pay a psychological and relational price for hiding parts of their authentic selves. Through documenting boys' perceptions of the obstacles they face and the pressures they feel to conform, and showing that their compliance with norms of masculine behavior is neither automatic nor inevitable, this accessible and engaging book provides insight into ways in which adults can foster boys' healthy resistance and help them to access a broader range of options for expressing themselves"--
The deepening darkness : patriarchy, resistance, and democracy's future by Carol Gilligan( Book )
16 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 502 libraries worldwide
"Why is America again fighting an unjust and limitless war? In this era of rising economic inequality and diminished human rights and values, why is America's political discussion distorted by religious fundamentalism, the fear of gay marriage, and the specter of abortion outlawed? Such contradictions within democracies arise from a patriarchal psychology still alive in our personal and political lives, in tension with the equal voice that is the basis of democracy. The Deepening Darkness traces the roots of this tension by joining Carol Gilligan's expertise in developmental psychology with David Richards's research into ethical resistance to injustice."--Jacket

The mask you live in ( visu )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 215 libraries worldwide
"The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become 'real' men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the 'boy crisis' and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men"--Representation Project website
