In the first installment of our “Books for 2020 and Beyond” series, AMCS Academic Coordinator Karen Skinner does a deep dive into her favorite book on the American Experience, the anthology Mormon Feminism: Essential Writings, edited by Joanna Brooks, Rachel Hunt Steenblik, and Hannah Wheelwright (Oxford UP, 2016). What Tolstoy called the quintessential American religion, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has been grappling with gender and power since its inception in 1830 in update New York. Building on her doctorate work, Skinner reveals how the Mormon feminist experience is an important part of the American experience in the fight for gender equity.
