The goal in the study was to examine the moral reasoning patterns of a sample of Kuwaiti male and female adolescents, and whether or not gender had an influence on their moral reasoning. There were 90 participants; 45 males and 45 females. They were randomly selected from three high schools in Kuwait city and were in grades 10-12. They ranged in age from 15-17 years (M = 15.9, SD = 1.8). The results show that the sample operated predominantly at stage 4 of Kohlberg’s (1984) moral judgment stages. No significant gender differences were found in the participants’ moral reasoning. These results are discussed in the light of previous research findings.
