Handbook of Feminist Family Studies
Description:

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. Sally A. Lloyd, April L. Few and Katherine R. Allen, eds. Available through SAGE Knowledge.
