Alford 2002: 41) How can she [the daughter] separate psychically from the mother without entering into another relationship where she relinquishes her will and desire? (Maguire 1995: 61) The model of self behind the ethic of care A major influential strand of feminist writing in the last twenty-five years has been the attempt to redefine theories of the self (also referred to as ‘subjectivity’, ‘the subject’ and ‘identity’) to reflect a feminine, caring, rather than a masculine, norm. In philosophy, this has entailed a critique of the Kantian, Enlightenment principle of the autonomous, independent, self-interested, individualistic subject in favour of a connected, relational, caring subject who is formed and embedded in social relationships and whose ethics are defined by care for others (Mackenzie and Stoljar 2000).

This is when the girls appeared to forfeit their ‘voice’, a part of themselves that is rooted in knowing and expressing their own desires, irrespective of patriarchal pressure. The evidence of the Harvard group emphasises the compliance that girls demonstrate when entering into relationships with boys. It makes sense to understand this evidence as a product of girls’ later conflicts of establishing their gender in an environment of gender complementarity. This is like the classic Oedipal conflict inasmuch as it is structured around the issue of loss, because being a girl involves giving up what one would have as a boy.

Britton’s reading of the Oedipus complex throws a different light on the child’s relationship with both its parents (see Chapter 3). Girls’ experience of separation is not structured by Oedipal dynamics in the same way. Girls do often turn to the father, but not only for Oedipal reasons (see Chapter 5). Benjamin argues that girls’ initial turn to the father is motivated by identificatory love (a pre-Oedipal dynamic), which enables the girl to aspire to be like the father. Freud thought that girls’ turn to the father is out of object love, wanting him for what she could not have – an effect of facing gender complementarity.
