Whether mythical amazons, mediaeval authors or regular cannonesses, Renaissance monarchs, activists and academics, philosophers or politicians, such women have become trail-blazers in their fields, attempting to forge new epistemes through strategies of undoing, refashioning, rewriting or revising political and cultural concepts, practices and institutions. The volume comprises 11 essays authored by academics from Brazil, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Turkey and the USA, and addresses a wide readership of academics, students, historians, NGO activists, etc. The volume is prefaced by Professor Margaret R.

Based on intensive interviews and extensive firsthand observation, The Family of Woman chronicles the experience of thirty-four families headed by lesbian mothers whose children were conceived by means of donor insemination.With its intimate perspective on the interior dynamics of these families and its penetrating view of their public lives, the book provides rare insight into the workings of emerging family forms and their significance for our understanding of "family"—and our culture itself.

The fundamental issue with ‘queer’ research is it cannot exist in any definable form, as the purpose of queer is to disrupt and disturb. This book generates a process of ‘undoing’ as central to queer research enquiries. Aiming to engage in a process which breaks free from traditional academic norms, the text explores three life stories: an intersex-identifying Catholic, a former ‘ex-gay’ minister and a Christian who engages in bondage and fetishist practices. Employing an ‘undoing’ methodology, which liberates the researcher and allows intuitive, reflective and creative methods, the book makes a significant contribution to the fields of gender, sexuality and queer studies in religion, both empirically and theoretically.
