Women and Families: Feminist Reconstructions

by Kristine Baber Katherine Allen

Families--often a source of satisfaction, growth, and fulfillment for women--can also be an arena of domination, abuse and pain. This volume uses a postmodern feminist perspective to elucidate women's myraid experiences in the family, providing an integrated analysis of critical aspects of intimate relationships, sexuality, childbearing decisions, caregiving, and work. Throughout, the book focuses on the nature of the choices women must make as thei attempt to meet their own needs while nurturing and sustaining their intimate and family relationships. Challenging the traditional definitions of the family, the authors incorporate feminist thinking and research from a variety of diciplines to illuminate both the commonalities and the differences in the experiences of diverse women. Action-oriented, the book stresses themes of economic autonomy, choice and equality, reproductive freedom, and education for critical awareness, and presents pragmatic recommendations for empowerment.
