Moral pride, more intense in girls than in boys?

Journal of Moral Education 48 (2):230-246 (2019)

ABSTRACTMoral pride has been found to be a positive component of moral life. Nevertheless, this emotion has been the object of little attention and hardly any studies focus on gender differences in this regard. Is this emotion more intense in girls than in boys? Five studies on authentic moral pride, with sample groups in different age ranges and using different measures, were carried out to answer this question. When significant or marginally significant differences were observed, they were always in favor of girls, but were fairly small. In the discussion, these results are interpreted in light of the feeling rules about pride in general and a series of guidelines are suggested for children’s education.
