differently in her work. Freud’s theories about gender are proven when the wives’ make the final decision to hide the evidence. Plus, Mael uses examples of gender and moral development to scrutinize the reasons why the men and women made the decisions that they did. She believes the scrutinization of their decisions was not only due to their roles in society but also for a deeper purpose. Mael’s view of moral dilemmas innates the disparity of a male’s dedication for moral principle versus a women’s emotional ethical sense that moral principles include problems within a relationship as well.
