Honorable Mention: “I’m A Mormon Feminist”

Because saying it matters almost as much as being it, cheers to the women and men claiming their religion alongside their feminist commitments over at “I’m A Mormon Feminist.”

Here are a few of the great images you’ll find there:

 

What is a Mormon feminist?  Here’s one answer:

“Simply put, feminists want equality for everyone, women and men. Feminists advocate for everyone to have the same opportunities in life – politically, economically, and socially. …  Mormon feminism shares the goal of equality that feminism has, but within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and within LDS culture. Like general feminism, Mormon feminism is made up of a very diverse group of people. Mormon feminists also do not always agree on what “equality” means or how to get there, but they are all invested in the ongoing conversation.”
