What is it about patriarchy that seems to make it so resilient and resistant to change? In this highly original and persuasively argued book, Carol Gilligan and Naomi Snider argue that patriarchy persists because it serves a psychological function - revealing that forces beyond our awareness are driving a politics that otherwise seems inexplicable.
