Lesbians and Generativity: Not Everyone Waits for Midlife
Author: Lauren Slater, Ed.D.

Current understandings of generativity fail to accurately describe women's and especially lesbians' experiences. Slater encourages feminists to adapt existing theory to further feminist exchange, in the hope that richer and more accurate understandings of lesbians' actual journeys through adulthood can emerge.Download now>>
