Le care, éthique féminine ou éthique féministe?

Translated title of the contribution: Care, feminine ethics or feminist ethics?

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


In this unpublished interview, Gilligan talks about the challenges of her book A different voice, republished in France in 2008. Her project was to make women's «moral» voice heard and men's numbed voices in the meantime. If the ethics of care is not female in itself, but relevant of human concerns, it can become the ethics of all at the price of a feminist critique aiming at freeing democracy of dichotomies and hierarchies of gender. Patriarchy remains a political key-concept against inequalities.
