Since it is still International Women's Day at 10:30 pm,  I am squeezing in a second post today .  Using my infamous circular thinking , I am also claiming that this article is a post for tomorrow.  I had a lot of fun collecting quotes and images to celebrate the vibrant life of both modern women and women of the past.For what is done or learned by on class of women becomes, by virtue of their common womanhood, the property of all women.  Elizabeth Blackwell (The first woman in the U.S. to become a physician) If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.  Margaret Fuller Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.  Louisa May AlcottRemember no one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Eleanor RooseveltMothers are the people who love us for no good reason. And those of us who are mothers know it’s the most exquisite love of all. Maggie GallagherGod could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers. Rudyard KiplingI am sure that if the mothers of various nations could meet, there would be no more wars. E. M. ForsterMany persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. Helen KellerMalala Yousafzai: Etremist have shown what frightens them the most: a girl with a book. ...more

I Don't Have a Blowtorch but I Do Have a Hair Dryer

It has taken an extraordinarily long time but I have had it with being oppressed. More specifically, I am done with thinking I'm oppressed or thinking that all women are oppressed, lamenting that, worrying about it. Even though it's true and in extremes beyond comprehension in many places, I want to stop thinking that somehow, everywhere women are in a lesser position.Because to believe that and to have internalized it means that I and other women are always beating back the overwhelming and crippling feeling of powerlessness....more

A Mormon Feminist on International Women’s Day

I don't make it the focus of my blog, but it's important enough to me that I'm sure it's bled through here and there: I am a feminist. And I am that special breed of feminist known as the Mormon Feminist. A wild and unruly group of women dedicated to their heritage, their community, their God, and each other, as we work and hope and pray for greater gender equity. This often means something different in each of our lives, which is wonderful. It means we've gotten big and strong enough as a movement to support diversity of thought....more
