These relationships, like marriage, are about building and sustaining economic and emotional interdependence and nurturing the next generation.

Polikoff shows how the law can value all families, and why it must. Impeccably researched, Beyond Straight and Gay Marriage offers an evocative read that takes in the full breadth of the issues affecting marriage and avoids pedantry while remaining persuasive.

Previously, she supervised the family law programs of the Women's Legal Defense Fund, and before that she practiced law as part of a feminist law collective, where she specialized in family law. For more than 30 years, she has been writing about, speaking about, and litigating cases involving lesbian and gay families.

Beyond Straight and Gay Marriage by Nancy Polikoff

This book really matters…it is a manifesto to transform the way we understand, recognize, and respect the reality of our diverse and complex family compositions. Polikoff mobilizes an impressive array of legal history and contemporary court cases…She argues vigorously that our society needs to find new ways of determining when legally enforceable responsibilities and entitlements have accrued in interpersonal relationships.

It is a powerful call for social justice.
