Exponent II is Back!

Today, Exponent II has two big announcements!  We are unveiling our exciting new webdesign, lovingly created by our Exponent sister of many hats, Jana.  And, we’re thrilled to publish our first issue since Winter 2009.

Our latest issue is available for free at our new website and contains articles from Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, an excerpt from an 1881 issue of The Woman’s Exponent, and a tribute to our friend, Linda Sillitoe.  Also, read personal essays on finding spiritual strength through other religious traditions, being inactive and still loving the Church, and how to educate others about sexual abuse.

Exponent II was first published in 1974 and has been a voice for Mormon women for over 30 years.  The new ExponentII.org allows you to access the latest online copy for free (information on how to order your very own hard copy will be forthcoming), and has informative links on: our history, our annual retreat in New England, The Exponent Blog, request for submissions, and prior issues of the paper.

We welcome submissions to Exponent II on all topics relating to the diverse experiences of Mormon women.  To submit your work, please send us an email at exponentii editor at gmail dot com. 

Reminder: Today is the last day for submissions that will be read by our Readers’ Committee over the summer.  The next round of submissions are due September 13th.

    I just finished perusing this latest issue, and I felt as if I were reading the Exponent II of my youth — thank you, thank you for resurrecting and preserving the beauty and majesty of the paper.

    In addition to the thoughtful articles, many of the artworks presented made me weepy because they reminded me of Eileen Perry Lambert’s artistic direction so many years ago. You have really recaptured this aesthetic in a way that is fresh, yet reminiscent of the physical “feeling” of the paper from so many years ago.

    Much love and blessings.

    It is truly fabulous to see it in print. It holds true to the wonderful tradition we have. Thank you Emily and Aimee and to everyone involved for your hard work. It shows. It feels monumental. I just sent a number of emails advertising it. I hope it will be a great asset to others. It feels great to carry on such a wonderful tradition.
