AbstractThis meta-analysis synthesizes quantitative findings of the gender differences in moral sensitivity retrieved from 19 primary studies. These suggest that gender differences in moral sensitivity are consistent across different levels of participants' education regardless of the instrument used to assess moral sensitivity or the format in which the research was reported.
