On Friday 9 December, Dr Galit Shaul and Prof Ruth Halperin-Kaddari had the pleasure to attend the Book Launch of Carol Gilligan’s new book: Joining the Resistance. Carol Gilligan is an American feminist, ethicist, and psychologist best known for her work on ethical community and ethical relationships, and certain subject-object problems in ethics.
In her new book, 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. We highly recommend this book to all!
