Varieties of Mormon Feminism: Boston-area Lecture This Thursday!

If you’re anywhere near Boston this Thursday night, please join us at Brandeis University for an event sponsored by the Hadassah/Brandeis Institute. Janet Bennion, an anthropologist who studies Mormon polygamy (and the author of the book Polygamy in Primetime) is joined by our own Laurel Ulrich for a conversation on what Mormon feminism looks like.

Wouldn’t it be great to have some real Mormon feminists in the audience as visual aids? Thursday night, 7:00. Park in the Epstein lot and find us in the Epstein building. If you’re on public transit, take the Fitchburg train line to the Brandeis stop, which is right next to the Epstein building. Or shoot us a heads-up in the comments and we’ll see if we can arrange some carpools.



On prolonged sabbatical from her career in arts administration, Libby is a seamstress, editor, entrepreneur, and community volunteer. She has a husband and three children.

    I am in the process of retiring as Presiding Patriarch of the Church of the Firstborn. I am intending to go a different direction. I would like to help develop a new feminist definition of the God Head. I am looking for someone, who has been through the Temple, is a feminist, can wrap her head around my theology and help me with a new definition, and is in search of a paper to write. I am on FaceBook. Please someone find me.
