F
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.

R
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.
A
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.
N
. . . while men represent powerful activity as assertion and aggression, women in contrast portray acts of nurturance as acts of strength.
K
The blind willingness to sacrifice people to truth, however, has always been the danger of an ethics abstracted from life.
