US "writer, researcher".

"My research suggests that men and women may speak different languages that they assume are the same, using similar words to encode disparate experiences of self and social relationships."

"In the different voice of women lies the truth of an ethic of care, the tie between relationship and responsibility, and the origins of aggression in the failure of connection."
"Implicitly adopting the male life as the norm, they have tried to fashion women out of a masculine cloth. It all goes back to Adam and Eve a story which shows . . . that if you make a woman out of man, you are bound to get into trouble."
" . . . while men represent powerful activity as assertion and aggression, women in contrast portray acts of nurturance as acts of strength."
"The blind willingness to sacrifice people to truth, however, has always been the danger of an ethics abstracted from life."
