Examines the influence of feminism on the family studies field, including the many ways feminism brings about a “re-visioning” of families that incorporates multiple voices and perspectives; centers the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, age, nation, ability, and religion as a pivotal framework for examining interlocking structures of inequality and privilege, both inside families and in the relationship between families and institutions, communities, and ideologies; provides concrete examples of how scholars and practitioners explore such facets of feminist family studies as intimate partnerships, kinship, aging, sexualities, intimate violence, community structures, and experiences of immigration; and explores how the infusion of feminism into family studies has created a crisis over deeply held assumptions about “family life” and calls for even greater fusion between feminist theory and family studies toward the creation of solutions to pressing social issues.
