“Will it make a difference to have a woman in the oval office? If gender is a difference that makes no difference, then what makes this moment historic?” - Carol Gilligan
The conversation about gender is changing. For the first time in U.S. history, a major political party is on the verge of nominating a woman for president, and we need a new way to discuss it. Using over 40 years of research that has revolutionized human sciences, Carol Gilligan goes beyond the criticism of pundits and public and asks what was the problem with Hillary? In this talk, Gilligan explores the tyranny of perfection that hinders ambitious women in schools, business, organizations, and the White House. The new conversation has started and engaging in it will prepare you for the future.
Psychologist, professor, and author of the groundbreaking book, In a Different Voice, Carol Gilligan “changed the voice of psychology.” Named one of the 25 most influential Americans by Time, Gilligan made women’s voices heard in their own right and with their own integrity for the first time in the social sciences. She has taught her world-famous Listening Guide in communities, clinical settings, and universities around the world, from Harvard and NYU to the University of Cambridge, Bolivia, and Abu Dhabi.
