Libraries need a feminist agenda...but which one?

Libraries need a feminist agenda...but which one? | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

[...] Now, an interesting question is whether the sexism facing librarians is (1) a product of more general, societal issues related to sex and gender, or (2) inherent in librarianship itself. Or, more likely, a little of both. So, are male library directors better paid because of pay disparity in employment in general, or because something about librarianship itself creates pay disparity. Is librarianship fundamentally sexist, or does it merely inherit the more general social trends towards discrimination? [...]

Women and Spirituality: Debunking Mormonism

Women and Spirituality: Debunking Mormonism | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

One stereotype is “Molly Mormon.” I think this is one we may have put on to ourselves. Molly Mormon is the perfect homemaker and stay-at-home mom. She wears modest, homemade clothing, and little to no make-up. She bakes bread; does all home-cooked meals; cans; quilts; sews; and serves others without breaking a sweat. She always looks camera ready, and is never heard yelling at her children.

 

Another stereotype that has been attached to Mormon women is that we are mealy-mouthed, subservient women who would gladly be sister wives in polygamist marriages. That is far from true. We each have our individual likes, dislikes and styles. We are a world-wide organization encompassing cultures from all around the globe. We are a force to be reckoned with both, individually and collectively.
