Did you know that the first woman senator AND member of the house of representatives was from Utah and a Mormon Well, it is true Cool, huh I ve learned so much from this book It is absolutely astounding and makes me so incredibly proud to be a Mormon woman I almost think this book should be required reading for LDS women It addresses all the hard points of LDS doctrine and history and addresses them with straight forward and accurate facts The authors don t try to give you their personal opinion [...]
I really liked this book It read quickly Mormon Sisters is a collection of essays about LDS women in early Utah This is not fiction or an opinion piece The authors do a really good job of just stating the facts and suggesting simple analysis Some of the essays were interesting and focused than others, but all of them were good For the most part, it was a really fascinating read These ladies were ambitious and independent, Eliza R Snow sounds kind of crazy and Susa Young Gates was super woman an [...]
I loved learning about the lives of my Mormon Sisters from days gone by They were strong, independent women who lived lives of faith, sacrifice, and service They did their best to follow God and to build God s kingdom on Earth I have seen these same traits in the Mormon women of the present I have looked up to so many strong women who have proved to me that the cookie cutter Mormon woman does not exist, she is a stereotype and an illusion The women I know have diverse backgrounds and opinions So [...]
A collection of essays by Mormon women about early Mormon women A somewhat mixed bag, but mostly pretty interesting In the days when American society was determined to rid itself of Mormonism, the principal casualties of the battle were the Mormon women the Church s opponents pretended to speak for Reviled and mocked by the public and sometimes estranged from their husbands who were forced into hiding, many Mormon women suffered greatly in those times These essays cover the lives of these women, [...]
The book was originally published in 1976 and came from a discussion group of Mormon women s history later it was republished with additional essays Each author decided on a particular topic to research, study, and write up and was ultimately edited and compiled by Claudia Bushman Each essay is easily read and digested and ranged somewhere between 15 and 23 pages including the notes section of each chapter The topics include women s healing, pioneer midwives, plural wives, feminists, political a [...]
This book is basically a bunch of different articles by different people I found some interesting than others The Victims in the Conflict article really caught my attention, because it brought up interesting issues that I hadn t thought of before My main question from the article is Why, if polygamy was so important to our eternal salvation, did God only let it last less than 50 years If God could defeat armies just for the children of Israel to have a plot of land then why wouldn t he have pav [...]
This book, first published in 1976, and edited by Claudia Bushman, came at a time when women in the faith were revitalized in their desire to know about the roots of their heritage Some chapters are fascinating, and there is plenty to offer a reader who enjoys history photographs from the LDS Archives and times, as well as chapters about of midwives, healers, schoolmarms, LDS women in fiction, early political suffragettes, plural wives and One of my favorite chapters was about Susa Young Gates [...]
Though I read an older edition of this book I d be really interested to get the 1997 edition since there were some things that I would have wanted current information about , I found it to be a fantastic examination of the legacy of strong women I have inherited as a member of the Mormon church.
I liked it, but liked the first half of the book better than the last The book is a collection of essays by different people, so each chapter reads a bit differently The second half seemed like a history text, which turned me off a bit, but the bulk of the books had lots of great information and an interesting perspective on the roles of women in early Mormonism.
The quality of the essays were very, very high great research and writing The essays didn t seem particularly related to each other particularly the one on portrayals in these women in fiction , but they were still all high quality.
Historical research into the lives of early Mormon women doesn t sound interesting to me on the face of it, but Dr Claudia Bushman is my hero The stories of these women fill me with power and light.
A great history of Mormon women in early Utah Particularly enjoyed the chapters dealing with polygamy, midwives, and healers This book made me want to pull myself up by my boot straps and quit whining.
Former Columbia University History Professor Claudia Bushman is the wife of noted Mormon and US historian and scholar Richard Bushman A noted historian on her own, this is a result of her in depth research of early female leaders of the LDS Church.
So funny and enlightening These women were feminists and hard core Mormons that changed a lot for the better in Utah and the States Loved it.
I read the earlier edition and really enjoyed learning about the everyday lives of my pioneer sisters.
Especially interesting were the chapters on midwivery, education teaching, and polygamous marriages.
Interesting lots of good historical facts, some well known, some not so well known Utah Pioneer women were characters, that s for sure.
