Around the blogs: WHM at Feminist Mormon Housewives

Feminist Mormon Housewives has been in superlative form in celebrating Women’s History Month. WHM posts so far have included Ronan’s discussion about an Akkadian princess and poetess; Julie’s feminist Family Home Evening lesson; Kiskilili’s discussion of women’s status in Ancient Mesopotamia; Margaret Toscano’s personal essay about her history; Heather O.’s post on pregnant women soldiers in the Civil War; Julie’s Young Women’s version of the anointing at Bethany; and now a guest post from Todd Compton about the life and feminism of Emily Dow Partridge.

It’s simple — if you’re not reading FMH this month, then you’re missing out on one of the best sets of posts the bloggernacle has seen in some time. Kudos to Lisa and her crew (do I detect traces of Janet’s handiwork?) for putting together this event, which should finally put to rest the tired old myth of FMH frivolity.

For the entire WHM series, check the WHM category page at FMH — or just the main FMH page this month.

    Speaking of feminist family home evening (or morning) lessons, this morning Diane and I read the OT chapter about Zelophehad’s Daughters. Of course I couldn’t help but think of the blog that goes by that name.

    I think in general the LDS women group blogs deserve attention. They have some extraordinary things going on.

    Much deserved kudos. Thanks Kaimi.

    “Feminist Mormon Housewives has been in superlative form in celebrating Women’s History Month.”

    When isn’t FMH celebrating Women’s History Month?

    Preach it my brother. I never heard anything, ever, in my two years in Young Women’s that compares with the meaty analysis in Julie’s reader’s theater. A top notch series.

    Thanks Kaimi, for the wonderful plug. You truely are the great bloggernacle ambassador/cheerleader/omnipresence. I think there really must be at least three of you.

    Thanks for the shoutout, Kaimi! You are quite the ‘nacle ambassador, but seriously, have you cloned yourself? I wan’t to be as industrious as you.

    I can’t claim WHM was my brainchild–it was all Lisa! The rest of us just happily hopped on board and helped recruit guests from all about the ‘nacle in hopes of promoting all sorts of communally minded interchange. We have some great stuff in the que, so stay tuned
