What is an anti-sexist living arrangement? The family (and women's position in it) has been a major topic of feminist theory and politics. Yet, despite exhortations to change the family or to form alternatives to it, there has been little research on women's attempts to put feminist politics into practice in their domestic lives. This text draws on interviews with women and men in explicitly anti-sexist living agreements, and gives information about how some women (and men) have tried to make their domestic lives less oppressive. The author provides a new perspective on the division of domestic labour, mothering, marriage and financial allocation in the home, and explores the relationship between home and work. Offering a feminist sociological answer to the question "what is an anti-sexist living arrangement?", this book is intended to be of use as a resource not only to feminists, but to anyone interested in the impact of feminism on family life. Written in an accessible style, this book will be of interest to all heterosexual women trying to make their private lives match their political ideals.
