News Article of the Week
Moral decision-making influenced by gender
In scenarios of moral decision-making, research shows that women show more empathy about causing harm than men do, regardless of the utility of the action. Paul Conway, of the University of Cologne in Germany, states that both biological (levels of testosterone) as well as social (feedback regarding amount of care one should give to other's feelings) contribute to the difference. Conway suggests that having more women in traditionally male decision-making situations would lead to more diverse outcomes.
