Mormon Feminism Today

The scholar Joanna Brooks says there have always been Mormon feminists. Emma
Smith, wife of LDS Church founder Joseph Smith, challenged the practice of polygamy. Women in Utah won the right to vote in 1870 and Brigham Young himself
encouraged women to study law or medicine. So why is it that "Mormon feminist"
strikes many as an oxymoron?

Thursday, Doug is joined by Joanna Brooks and historian Claudia Bushman for a look at today's brand of feminism and what it means for Mormon women.

Join us for RadioWest weekdays at 11 a.m. Mountain on KUER 90.1 and on XM
Public Radio Channel 133. You can also catch a rebroadcast of the program at 7
p.m. on KUER. Links to books and other resources related to this topic are
available on-line at <> This program will also be available
on-line for 3 months following its broadcast.
