My presentation of Gilligan’s position is strongly indebted to the (largely unpublished) work of Michelle Dumont and to a two day workshop on Ethics and Gender conducted by Carol Gilligan at the University of San Diego, January 27-28, 1997. I have not yet had to use the tutor support but will be sending my first essay in a few weeks so hope the service is as good as what i have experienced so far.
