"This timely interdisciplinary and international collection studies the aftermath of legal reforms made in the name of equality - including 2013's same-sex marriage for England and Wales and the striking down of America's Defense of Marriage Act - and provides methodological, conceptual and theoretical resources for further research. Inspired by queer theory and feminist theory, the chapters' methodologies range from discourse analysis to empirical research. Chapters focus on the UK, Canada, and the US, examining legal developments around same-sex couples and parenting, fathers' rights and equal parenting, cohabitation and care, and organizing for racial equality. This contextual, socio-legal work will be a valuable resource for undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in law, sexuality and gender studies, sociology, and political science in the UK, the USA, and Canada as well as in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand"-- Provided by publisher.
