Gendered Readings for 6/11

1. Gilligan said "women's place in man's life cycle has been that of a nurturer, caretaker and helpmate, the weaver of those networks of relationships on which she in turn relies." Do you agree with this view? Do you feel that men's views on women have changed?

2. The reading states that a central male reading strategy seems to be positioning of tabloids as "news" or "information" that helps them find out about the world outside them (144). I feel that this could be an excuse. If men were seeking news and information, would you think they would look to more reliable sources?
