A ground-breaking volume of all new essays covering the conjunction of two topics--feminism and families--that, for all their centrality in our culture, have not been adequately examined in light of one another. While the family has suffered feminist neglect, most women are in fact members of families, living their lives within the social context of families, even at a time when the concept of "family" has become bewilderingly unstable. The intersection of families and feminism is thus one in need of philosophical reflection, as a basis both for good public policy and for the ethical relationships of intimate life.

"Feminism and Families … is a fine collection of original essays intended to fill what Nelson calls the "white spaces" in works of feminist theory, that is, the practically ubiquitous places where a discussion of the family is logically required but conspicuously absent." -- Ethics
