The correct answer is Option D) Power is distributed equally among the adult members of the family.A true egalitarian family is one in which power is distributed equally among the adult members of the family.This is in contrast to a patriarchal 'traditional' family, where the head of family has more power. Throughout history, the majority of the family systems around the world have been patriarchal, where the father was the head of a family, both economically and socially, and to the mother to take care of the children as a home maker.An egalitarian family is a more modern concept that is considered in an ideal situation for the majority of feminists.
