    But as much as modern women (whatever that means) owe to icons such as Gloria Steinem, the first-wave definitions of feminism just don't fit anymore. A generation of girls has been raised in a post-feminist world, one in which our mothers worked, our fathers helped around the house, and we were expected to go out and get real jobs before we got married and had babies. For middle- and upper-middle-class Americans, the old models of an oppressive patriarchy just aren't there anymore—having been replaced by something still too nebulous to define—and the angry words of a generation gone-by ring hollow in the post-sexual-revolution world.    (Adrienne Martini)

Matrifocal Family "A family form in which the mother, sometimes assisted by other women of the household, is the most influential socializing agent and is central in terms of cultural values, family finances, patterns of decision making, and affective ties." (Hunter and Whitten, 1982)
