Lesbian parents and their families: Complexity and intersectionality from a feminist perspective
This chapter will demonstrate how feminist research on lesbian-parent families has challenged and re-visioned biological, emotional, and legal notions of motherhood, parenthood, and family. By attending not only to the inequalities and differences between lesbian parents and heterosexual parents but also to the inequalities, diversity, and contradictions among lesbian parents, feminist scholarship has shed light on the diverse ways in which lesbian mothers both challenge and are challenged by the traditional nuclear family and the inherently gendered and patriarchal nature of the social structure (e.g., Gabb, 2004, 2005).
