Feminism, as a social movement, began by emphasizing the interests of women. This book moves beyond that initial agenda by also considering the interests of children and men. As women’s roles expand, it becomes evident that the goals of women are harmonious with the interests of children, and seldom in conflict with those of men. The loosening of traditional family roles and the emerging diversity in family forms provide flexibility not only for women, but for all family members. Family policy and practice must take into account these changes and challenges brought about by the new families. FEMINISM, CHILDREN, AND THE NEW FAMILIES paves the way.
