In a Different Voice: Psychological Theory and Women's Development.

by Carol Gilligan

First published in 1982, this classic book challenges the traditional way of looking at women's psychological development, focusing on the importance of relationships in women's lives. Still important today, the book looks at voice, which the author defines as "something like what people mean when they speak of the core of the self. Voice is natural and also cultural. And voice is a powerful psychological instrument and channel, connecting inner and outer worlds." What a person says and doesn't say and how she says it tell much about an individual and how she views herself in relation to others, Gilligan theorizes. (Harvard University Press, 1982, 1993)
