Social Responses to Mormon Feminists: “No One Else Was Talking About It, So it Must Be Taboo”

This session presents a study drawing on interviews, blogs, and podcasts examining the motivations and consequences individual Mormon women have faced when engaging in feminist activities. What motivates them to engage in such activities? What happens to their persona in their religious communities? How does this shift impact their private lives? How have LDS Church leaders reacted to them? What formal or informal social controls have these women experienced?
