Overview

More than any other psychologist, Carol Gilligan has helped us to hear girls' voices just when they seem to be blurring and fading or becoming disruptive during the passage into womanhood. When adolescent girls--once assured and resilient--silence or censor themselves to maintain relationships, they often become depressed, and develop eating disorders or other psychological problems. But when adolescent girls remain outspoken it is often difficult for others to stay in relationship with them, leading girls to be excluded or labeled as troublemakers. If this is true in an affluent suburban setting, where much of the groundbreaking research took place, what of girls from poor and working-class families, what of fading womanhood amid issues of class and race? And how might these issues affect the researchers themselves? In Between Voice and Silence Taylor, Gilligan, and Sullivan grapple with these questions. The result is a deeper and richer appreciation of girls' development and women's psychological health.

In an urban public school, among girls from diverse cultural backgrounds--African American, Hispanic, Portuguese, and white--and poor and working-class families, the authors sought a key to the relationship between risk, resistance, and girls' psychological development and health. Specifically, they found cultural differences that affect girls' coming of age in this country. In Between Voice and Silence, the story of the study parallels another, that of African American, Hispanic, and white women who gathered to examine their own differences and to learn how to avoid perpetuating past divisions among women. Together, these two stories reveal an intergenerational struggle to develop relationships between and among women and to hold and respect difference.

The authors sought a key to the relationship between risk, resistance, and girls' psychological development and health. In Between Voice and Silence, they explore the cultural differences that affect girls' coming of age in this country and reveal an intergenerational struggle to develop relationships between and among women to hold and respect difference.

Editorial Reviews

American Journal of Sociology - Donna Eder
This enlightening book focuses on the lives of 26 girls as they struggle to overcome a range of obstacles in their family and school lives...This book [shows] the importance of sustained, accepting relationships with women in order for girls to have opportunities to speak freely, sort through complex issues in their lives, and feel understood...The book's strengths include its interdisciplinary approach in which the authors, speaking as essayists, story writers, and cultural critics as well as social researchers, often draw on the voices of women of color (along with their daughters and other girls)...They bring a more sophisticated approach to listening into psychological inquiry, one which explicitly attends to cultural and ethnic biases.
Families in Society - Elaine P. Congress
Written in a clear, interesting manner, Between Voice and Silence has much to offer social work practitioners, educators, and administrators. Instead of seeing the adolescent girl as an irresponsible teenage mother or acting-out high school student, this book presents the voices of adolescent girls in their struggles within nonsupportive environments.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Public school girls ``at risk''-for early motherhood, dropping out of school, abusive relationships-are the subject of this collaborative study by three Boston-based psychologists. Earlier ``voice-centered'' (listening to) research on girls in a single-sex private school produced solid evidence for believing that at adolescence, girls lose a sense of self and undergo a developmental crisis that inhibits their expressive faculties. This report focuses on 26 girls in grades eight and nine who are culturally and racially different from one another, from poor and working-class urban backgrounds, who reveal their strategies for navigating the psychological distance between home and school. The researchers speak of their own learning to listen to girls who, at the start of high school, were beginning to silence themselves as the result of personal losses, betrayals and isolation. As with the earlier, landmark study, this important, accessible research establishes the need for bringing women and girls together. Taylor teaches at Simmons College; Gilligan is a professor at Harvard's Graduate School of Education, where Sullivan is a doctoral candidate. (Feb.)
Library Journal
The authors, members of the Harvard Project on Women's Psychology and Girls' Development, participated in the Project's Understanding Adolescence Study, which was carried out in two middle schools in Boston and involved 26 "at-risk" girls from working-class or poor families. During the last year of the study, six retreats dealing with women and race were held with 11 professional women of diverse backgrounds, and transcripts from the retreats were interwoven with those from the study to enhance understanding of the girls' interviews. Part of the ongoing study that produced Lyn Brown and Carol Gilligan's Meeting at the Crossroads (Harvard Univ., 1992), this book will be of interest and use to anyone working with adolescent girls. Highly recommended for high school and university libraries.-Sharon Firestone, Ross-Blakeley Law Lib., Arizona State Univ., Tempe
