Unconventional Family by Sandra Lipsitz Bem

Book Description

This engrossing book by the author of The Lenses of Gender is an account of her years as an egalitarian partner in a gender-liberated, anti-homophobic, feminist marriage. Bem reveals how she and her husband, Daryl, became gender pioneers, how they raised their two children, and what their experiences - both positive and negative - have to say about the viability of nontraditional gender arrangements in society today.
