    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 48.95

    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.

    The discovery that one?s husband is gay or bisexual is a surprise for which most women are totally unprepared.
