Inspirational stories from women across Europe demonstrate that shifting social, political and religious boundaries have facilitated a new visibility and openness for lesbian mothers. Changing public attitudes are explored in relation to the social, political and economic realities which largely mitigate against lesbian insemination parenting, fostering and adoption. Even in those countries where acceptance of lesbian and gay lifestyles has resulted in legal protection, such as anti-discrimination legislation and the right to register same-sex partnerships, the domain of the family remains reserved exclusively for heterosexuals.
The women interviewed discuss how to conceive a child; the effects of children on lesbian relationships; lesbian identity versus motherhood; attitudes of friends, family and colleagues; relationships with the father; role models; and lesbian motherhood as a political act.
Profiles of the 28 countries provide information about the political, social and economic climates as well as current details of legislation affecting lesbian access to donor insemination, adoption and fostering, child and family benefits, support groups and networks, and indicators for future change.
