Kristin McCarty is a PhD Candidate in Sociology. Using a feminist theoretical perspective and drawing from legal consciousness studies, her dissertation examines the beliefs and behaviors of non-traditional families in the United States in order to understand how they experience interactions with socio-legal institutions and how they may or may not resist or implement legal ideas in the process of family-building.
