Over at Mormon Scholars Testify, Valerie Hudson Cassler has en eye-opening and I hope mind-opening contribution that I think is worthy of discussion and reflection by many of us in the Church. In “I am a Mormon Because I am a Feminist,” she provides an important perspective and some great reminders about our approach to core LDS doctrine. Here is one of several interesting quotes from her:
I remain a steadfast member of the Mormon Church because, for the first time in my life, I understand why it is not a curse to be born a woman, and how it can be said with a straight face that men and women stand before God and before each other as true equals. I understand now that women are that they might have joy (2 Ne 2:25).
I’m grateful for her voice and the many contributions she has made to the world in her journey.
