Description - The Matrifocal Family by Raymond T. Smith

The concept of the "matrifocal family" denotes neither female-based households nor female domination. Instead the essays in this collection focus attention on the contribution made by women in maintaining family relations in situations of both racial and gender domination, and point to the crucial role played by family ties in creating and maintaining class and status hierarchies.
