About the Author

CAROL GILLIGAN is a university professor at New York University and author of In a Different Voice among other works. She was named by Time Magazine as one of the 25 most influential Americans.


"It is fun moving through this book with Gilligan as she chances onthis or that element of patriarchy - in Freud, Lysistrata,Hawthorne, Marvell, Oresteia. And it is enlightening to watch herdemolish the wheeze of a child's support scheme which never was oris the simple mother/father/child triad." Review ofArts, Literature, Philosophy, and the Humanities "This is a small book about love, hope and empathy in the contextof Carol Gilligan s journey as a psychologist, a researcher,a writer and a feminist. It is a book that emerging social scienceresearchers and clinical practitioners will find much in,particularly with regard to her passion for qualitative researchand feminism." Sex Roles "An intelligent, mature and important contribution to the kind offeminism we all need and want Gilligan has written animportant book which should be read by all, not only by girls andwomen, but also by boys and men. Her invitation for all tojoin the resistance should be heeded, for its beneficiaries belongto humans of all genders and ages. In this sense, we shouldall count ourselves as feminists of Gilligan s type and thusmake way for a democratic society of caring equals." USC Graduate Journal "Helps heal the split between reason and emotion, mind andbody, self and relationships, especially as they relate to genderidentity. There is much food for thought in this work." Scientific and Medical Network "In Joining the Resistance, Gilligan makes a usefuldistincton in the debate about the ethic of care, by which herearlier work has been characterized and criticized, to emphasizeher main theoretical point: The way forward out of patriarchy is ademocratic solution that frees women and men to pursue a humanethic of care." Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books Carol Gilligan is one of the pre-eminent psychologists ofour time. Joining the Resistance is a leap forward in what hasbecome her life-journey, connecting psychology to culture. The bookstands on its own as a work of art; it is beautifully written andlike the best sort of novel, full of surprises. Richard Sennett, New York University "Original work expands our humane capacity. In Joining theResistance, Carol Gilligan continues to inspire us. Hers is agenerous art, clearing a road that leads to a thriving place - oneof love and justice. Will we allow ourselves?" Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, author of Random Family: Love, Drugs,Trouble, and Coming of Age in the Bronx
