In 2003, religion journalist Peggy Fletcher Stack wrote a much-discussed article for the Salt Lake Tribune entitled: “Where Have All the Mormon Feminists Gone?” In many ways, the question echoed that of other second-wave feminists who bemoaned the seeming apathy of the rising generations.  Where were these new feminists?  Well, increasingly, we were online, organizing, talking, sharing, building bridges.

Which brings me to last week, when Ms. Stack published an important addendum to her 2003 article, this time calling it: Mormon Feminism: It’s Back. Check it out — it’s a fascinating read.

The same issue of the paper highlights the rebirth of the Exponent Magazine. Yay!
