The author of this book, which includes a brief introduction by Sophonisba Breckenridge, maintains that an Equal Rights Amendment, such as the one then being proposed by Alice Paul and the Woman's Party, would lead to chaos and confusion. She argues that absolute equality with men would strip away certain forms of protective legislation from which certain groups of women . equal moral standard, advocate severe repressive measures, chiefly, if not entirely, directed against women. Others again (of whom I am one) hold that the streets ought to be kept clear for the use of the public, and ought not to be improperly used, or rather abused, by either men or women for their own immoral ends.   As an example, workplace studies show that women who go against the caring, nurturing feminine stereotype may pay dearly for it when being hired or evaluated. And when it comes to personal relationships, best-selling books and popular magazines often claim that women and men don't get along because they communicate too differently. Are Women Morally Different from Men? Michael Slote Everyone has believed from time immemorial that men and women are dif-ferent, but in recent years—and perhaps surprisingly given the emergence of feminism and the movement for equal rights—there has been a crescendo of talk about such differences. John Gray’s famous Men are from Mars, WomenAuthor: Michael Slote.

Carol Gilligan argues that in moral views, men usually emphasize rights and principles, whereas women place more importance on: the process. The theory of which care-ethics is a part of which states that morality always involves certain relations with certain people, rather than lifeless abstractions, is known as.

  A collection of original stories, songs, and poems accompanied by whimsical drawings and stunning illustrations. Each story celebrates individuality, encourages diversity, and challenges stereotypes in a joyful, positive way. One story, for example, retells the Greek legend of Atalanta about babies who use gender stereotypes to try to discover.   Gilligan argues that the issue is not one of moral superiority or inferiority, but rather that men and women have ''two disparate modes of experience'' that affect their values and views of the world.   A number of studies demonstrate that men have lower moral standards than women, at least in competitive contexts. For example, men are more likely than women to minimize the consequences of moral misconduct, to adopt ethically questionable tactics in strategic endeavors, and to engage in greater deceit.
