In this interview with Dr. Bushman, we learn what she means when she describes herself as a Mormon Feminist. She also recounts her involvement in the formation of Exponent II, as well as in the broader area of women’s issues in the LDS church. To conclude, Dr. Bushman discusses her views on the critical role of women in the church today — and how we, as a church, might work to better accommodate, and better utilize women in the 21st century.
I would also like to express my deep gratitude to Melissa Wei-Tsing Inouye, who conducted this interview for Mormon Stories podcast. Melissa is completing her Ph.D . at Harvard University, and specializes in the history of China’s Christian communities.
