Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. Contributors: Bat-Ami Bar On, Francoise Baylis, Judith Bradford, Cheshire Calhoun, Sidney Callahan, Jocelyn Downie, John Hardwig, Judith Hughes, Patricia Mann, Diana Meyers, Mary Midgley, Michelle Moody-Adams, Susan Moller Okin, Laura Purdy, Mary Romero, Sara Ruddick, Crispin Sartwell, and Naomi Zack, Linda Nicholson.
