The Big Think - Carol Gilligan on the Psychological Differences between Men and Women

Carol Gilligan expanded Lawrence Kohlberg's moral development hierarchy to include women, who have a slightly different sense of morality than do men, based more in communion than in agency. This is "Carol Gilligan on the emotional voice you never hear," from The Big Think.

I'm not convince that only women can speak from the emotional voice, maybe once, but that seems to be a generalization, not an absolute truth.
