There were quite a few feminists among the English graduate students. It was fun times.

The women's studies program! Also, there's a group that does "feminist FHE" on Monday nights after your typical FHE group is usually over.

Huh. I wonder if it's the feminist FHE I know about.

Probably. As long as it's in Provo, it's probably the same group of people.

Reviving an old thread! I was struck by this line in a review of a book I'm reading:
It’s not only, as she notes herself, a question of historical context. Like so many others right now, she seems to have forgotten that, even five years ago, you would have been hard pressed to get many, if not most, women in the public eye to call themselves feminists.

I graduated from BYU five years ago, when I feel the debate about the role of women in Mormonism reached peak publicity. Do you think that this was especially rare as recently as 2013?
