This abstract presents a model I call the “family matrix”, which is a development of Judith Butler´s “heterosexual matrix”. The model attempts to grasp social norms concerning the family in their entanglement with the material base s of gender inequality. These reflections are inspired by my norm-critical analyses of Swedish family law. Their aim is to contribute to discussions in political philosophy.
