This study seeks the presence of contents related to gender and ethics in the writings of 12 pioneers in psychology, both from United States and Chile: William James, Stanley Hall, James Baldwin, Mary Calkins, Margaret Washburn, Helen Thompson, Hernán Larraín, Salvador Cifuentes, Sergio Yulis, Lola Hoffmann, Héliettè Saint Jean, and Leyla Holmberg. We confirmed our central hypothesis, that a prevalence of an "ethics of justice" for male writers and an "ethics of care" for female writers of the United States was found. The same was not observed in Chilean writers. Characteristics of the development of the discipline and sociohistorial context of each country, more than gender of the author, seem to influence the way the selected authors approached the studied dimensions.
