Abstract
  • The aim of this study is to explore how women who identify as both active, believing Mormons and as feminists negotiate the contradictions between an ideology that values equality (feminism) and a religion that values patriarchy (Mormonism). Data were gathered through recorded and transcribed interviews with women who identify as both Mormon and Feminist. Findings suggest a) Mormon feminists practice a gentle approach to feminist activism, b) Mormon patriarchs practice a gentle approach to maintaining patriarchal hierarchy, c) privilege buffers the effects of patriarchy among many Mormon feminists, and d) Mormonism contains empowering elements that are attractive to Mormon feminists.
