: Where We Must Stand: Ten Years of Feminist Mormon Housewives
is an anthology of blog posts from the first decade of the Feminist Mormon Housewives blog, 2004â2014. The posts discuss Mormon womenâs experiences of wrestling with feminism in a conservative religious tradition. The book highlights individual moments of reflection and faith while tracking the growth and progress of a larger community and religious social movement. Bloggers and community members moved from writing to activism, witnessed the public excommunication of a community member, mourned, and changed. The Feminist Mormon Housewives blog emerged at a time when the broader Mormon feminist movement was in decline. The bloggers shared their discovery of Mormon feminist history, concerns and fears about polygamy, the difficulty of navigating church and family relationships, losing and finding faith, the worst sex talk that ever happened in a church setting, and the awakening of a broader social consciousness. In doing so, they invited a new generation of women into the movement and helped to rebuild it. Where We Must Stand
includes more than a hundred and thirty blog posts, historical introductions, reflective essays from bloggers and readers, and extensive notes. It is an introduction to the lived experiences of Mormon women that doesn't shy away from the problematic elements of being Mormon while working toward gender equity.
