    I’m a producer working on a national radio programme in the UK called Woman’s Hour. We cover a wide range of issues with a female focus. I’m very interested in speaking to someone about the feminist movement within the Mormon religion. I wonder if someone would be Kind enough to contact me with a phone number that I can call to speak to someone about this. I can be contacted on 00 44 161 836 1359 UK time. Otherwise I can be contacted by email. I’m hoping to find a contributor to explain women’s role in the Mormon church and what the feminist movement are hoping to change.
    Best wishes

    Hi,
    I would like to ask that a comment please be removed from one of your posts. It was on your recent post about conference (April 11, 2013) and I wrote a comment as Anonymous that started with “I completely agree.” I was hoping you would be kind enough to delete that post as I realize it was rude and not my place to judge, and feel bad for posting that. Thank you.

    Let me get this right, holding open a couple of doors is an annoyance? Isn’t that a little exaggerated? So now being polite is not really appreciated? Paying for dinner, holding doors, chivalry or respect is dead, I don’t get it. Why is it so hard to say what you really want, it could be so easy, but we complicate simplicity. If it would make a person feel better for treating someone else to dinner, so be it, return the favor next time. If you can open your own doors, so be it, but why not try holding the door for the guy once in awhile? You don’t may not want the special treatment, but maybe the next guy might. Maybe men want a little special treatment once in awhile, if a guy is being nice and its not appreciated, well … that means last place right? Fine, get your own door, pay for your own meal, but be respectful

    Unitards isn’t cool anymore, if it ever was. They’re going to think you are transgender if you look like a sideshow freak now.

    I found my way here after reading several articles by Ms. Wheelwright, in many ways it reminds me of a group, the Mormon Alliance, I had brief acquaintance with many years ago. As these folks were agitating for changed during one of their meetings in Salt Lake City, I suggested to them, as I do to you now. “If you want change you need to get people of your like minded opinion into leadership positions and have them institute the change.”

    The rational is:
    A. Either this is from on high in which case until deity speaks nothing you do will change how the bureaucracy of the church is ran on earth so your just banging your head on the wall—bang on.
    B. Until someone of your opinion becomes the president of the church nothing is going to change. I might suggest upbringing a generation that believes as you do but has the ability to do as Joseph Smith taught. That they will be able to keep a secret until doomsday. If you do this, you will find success, if not you will be fighting this just cause just as your grandmothers did, when Joseph Fielding Smith robbed many of the priesthood blessings from them. This however, suggests flaws to A. We are after all children in a kitchen trying to bake a cake with no recipe.

    Another take and one well attested to, is that women obtain the priesthood at the time of receiving the endowment. There is ample evidence of this even in today’s world but I would suggest reading:

    Women and Authority Re-emerging Mormon Feminism Maxine Hanks, editor especially Chapter 17 “Mormon Women Have Had the Priesthood Since 1843” D. Michael Quinn

    Linda King Newel “The Historical Relationship Of Mormon Women And Priesthood” Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, VOl 18 No. 3 Fall 1985

    Linda King Newel “A GIFT GIVEN, A GIFT TAKEN: WASHING, ANOINTING, AND BLESSING THE SICK AMONG MORMON WOMEN Changes from Joseph’s time to the present” Sunstone September/October 1981

    How can you possibly call yourself a feminist when you support and submit to such a blatant patriarchy? Labeling homophobic and sexist actions taken by the church as “missionary opportunities” rather than acts of hatred is hardly progressive. This site is no more than over-pious conformism masquerading as feminism. Please, get out of the 1950s.

    We invite you to link up to a new website we’ve just launched that deals with issues relevant to faithful LDS women – things like gender issues and even the philosophical underpinnings of polygamy. Feel free to join us and weigh in. I would especially recommend the post “The Creation of Eve.” https://thewonderwomen.squarespace.com/config#/pages/blog|/blog/2014/11/6/the-creation-of-adam-and-eve

    No active member of the church can truly be feminists. Unless they are secretly on Satan’s side.
