I just finished my last semester of my undergrad degree. (Yay me!) One of the courses I took for my General Liberal Education Requirements was a class in women and gender studies called “Religion, Sexuality, and Feminism”. It was a fascinating class and I learned so much about other religions.
For our final paper, we had to discuss a religion from a feminist perspective. I had done research on Wicca for a class presentation, so I thought it would be kind of cool to do a paper on Mormonism, specifically on Heavenly Mother.
You can read it here.
I learned a lot and I am amazed at how out of touch we as a church are with Heavenly Mother. I wish we knew more about here.
It was a good experience. I was hoping to combine Mormonism and Feminism for my master’s thesis, but it’s not going to work out at my local university. This is probably the closest I will get.
