Abstract

Recent evidence suggests that we empathize with others, in the sense of spontane-

ously imitating them, from birth. Feminist psychologists and others have also

pointed out how men, as boys, might be socialized into defending against such

fellow-feeling, whilst women, as girls, are socialized into negating themselves in

empathizing with others as daughters, lovers, and mothers.
