Calling for nothing less than a radical reform of family law and a reconception of intimacy, The Neutered Mother undertakes an ambitious and revolutionary rethinking of the law's approach to the family. This new book by one of America's foremost feminist legal theorist argues strongly against current legal and social policy discussions about the family because they do not have at their core the crucial concepts of caregiving and dependency, as well as the best interests of women and children. The Neutered Mother scrutinizes the definitions of family and mother throughout the volume while paying close attention to issues of race, class and sexuality.
