For both sexes Either we believe in patriarchy the rule of men over women or we believe in euality We cannot believe in both at once Neither can we with impunity choose not to choose which one we believe in To remain in indecision erodes great chunks of our identity along with great chunks of our integrity Sonia Johnson I knew Sonia long before she became a prominent women s advocate It was 1973 and my wife and I were attending the English speaking congregation of the LDS Church in Seoul Korea where Sonia and Richard and their children also attended I was in the Army while Richard was in Korea on a sabbatical Stones of Contention from his work doing research of some kind or so he told me Sonia was serving as Relief Society President the leader of the local Church women s organization Myirst contact with her was when my wife came to me on our irst Sunday there immediately after Relief Society meeting telling me what a gifted president they had a PhD in English and learned on many subjects My wife s initial positive image of Sonia changed dramatically over the next ew months as she heard Sonia become increasingly critical of the Church yet claiming absolute loyalty I shared my wife s concern because when I spoke with her she displayed a distinct air of superiority on virtually any subject she discussed She criticized aspects of the Temples of the Church and made it clear that her wisdom was The Wolf Gift far above that of the Church leadership Other women in the congregation beside my wife were also concerned with her egotism I wondered how long it would be before her arrogance caused open conflict within the congregation Shortly after she was releasedrom her calling without anfare and not long after that Richard and Sonia and their children moved out of the area My wife and I wondered or some time what became of them and we were shocked a A Clockwork Orange few years later to learn that she had become openly defiant in the American press against LDS Church leadership Like Sonia my wife had initially supported the ERA but unlike Sonia my wife ultimately considered it a Pandora s box that would unleash many negative conseuences on American society She chose to support the LDS Church leadership in opposing the ERA not because she wanted to see women suppressed or oppressed but because she and they considered it bad legislation that would lead to the removal of vital protectionsor womenMy wife and I had always admired the many LDS women we had met who were gifted with great intellect as well as humility Sonia had the ormer but we had never seen the latter uality in her Despite Sonia s arguments to the contrary in my 50 years since becoming a convert to the Church I have seen that Church leadership at all levels teaches the euality of men and women as well as distinctness in their primary God given responsibilities that in the home they are eual partners and no husband is living by Church precepts who dominates or rules over his wife Mormon Patriarchy as Sonia describes it is largely a myth except among Mormons in name only who do not understand or practice actual LDS doctrine Since the earliest days of the LDS Church higher education has been encouraged among LDS women and has never been an impediment to their service in the Church ironically the Relief Society IN OUR CURRENT LDS CONGREGATION IN our current LDS congregation in holds a PhD in English but is also one of the most compassionate and humble people we have ever #met Emma Smith wife of the irst president of the LDS Church was well educated or her day #Emma Smith wife of the irst president of the LDS Church was well educated or her day an outspoken advocate of women s rights and opportunities with her husband s ull support she served as the The Ordways first General Relief Society President of the Church and her service is admired by all LDS women I have met who know her story My wife and I have no rancor toward Sonia Johnson we simply regret deeply that she chose a path so at odds with the values she claimed to espouse earlier in her life that she has distorted and misrepresented LDS teachings and has alienated herselfrom many عبد الناصر والعالم family members andormer riends If she is a martyr as she would portray herself in her writings and speeches she is apparently a self made one A ascinating look at the 1970 s battle to ratify the Eual Rights Amendment and the extensive effort by LDS Church went to block it It was eerily reminiscent of last year s election season when the LDS church once again threw it s massive monetary and man power against the Same Sex Marriage props on various ballots Except to my knowledge no one was excommu Sometime around 1982 my mom read this book Mom had not grown up Mormon like Johnson but had been similarly indoctrinated in many ways old school morals the necessity of marriage in order to live a A Wedding in Cornwall (Cornwall fulfilled life as a woman She married my dad whoelt entitled to her life as well as his own and set to being a good wife and mother This is not to say that she didn t think Japan-Ness in Architecture for herself but just that her thoughts didn t really matter to my dad and her life was lived entirelyor the purpose of taking care of others She credits this book with waking her up making her a radical eminist starting her on a path that led to going back to school to inish her undergraduate degree and get her masters and then divorcing my dadSo I read the book to gain some understanding of my mom At Theoretical Anxiety and Design Strategies in the Work of Eight Contemporary Architects first I didn t understand the appeal in spite of their similar beliefs that were pushed on them while growing up But reading of Johnson s involvement in the ERAight of the 70s and subseuent excommunication rom the Mormon church I recognized her influence in my mom It was a ascinating book The Psychopharmacology of Herbal Medicine for her own story

Ove accounts it would seem that I have a very reasonable understanding of womengender rolesculture False assumption I was completely unprepared with the magnitude to which the truth of women s experiences in religious patriarchal cultures would hit me It just goes to show things are uzzier when you are in the midst of them specifically Mormonism For me Sonia Johnson s memoir From Housewife to Heretic was a game changer Although it was written in the late 1970s the content is still very current Minimal change has occurred in the LDS Church in decades and nothing has needed to change because the church wielded its politicalfinancial strength and defeated the Eual Rights AmendmentMuch like it has recently defeated Proposition 8The Church will cling to its power and patriarchy at any cost Johnson sheds much needed light on common practices and dogma in the Church that have lasting conseuences or both sexes and the culture as a whole Several of the conseuences are Patriarchy In the Mormon Church patriarchy is sacred it is held to be the principle of organization by which a male God created and governs the world through other males like himself It is the masculine glue that holds the world together Members of the Church are taught this all our lives and have it reinforced one hundredfold in the temple the most sacred Mormon structure in which the divinity of maleness is the basic message Priesthood Women are able to have babies men should have the priesthoodeverything elsepowerprivilege Women are spiritual and righteous than men therefore men need to have the priesthood to teach the men to be better persons Women don t need to hold the priesthood when they have men to act A Texas Rangers Family (The Stone Family for God on their behalf Men are women s link to heaven above even their own personal inspiration When did God begin being withholding of peopleor being righteous When it served men s interests The Pedestal Patriarchal Reversal As the rhetoric about women in a patriarchal institution or society ascends the oppression descends As rhetoric becomes elevated exalted women are superior and have never had it so good reality sets in where women actually experience their lives The language is a deliberate attempt to distract women Racialization, Crime, and Criminal Justice in Canada from what is really happening to them in their lives The rhetoric manipulates our perceptions so we will believe what it benefits men to have women believe Men are the authorities and women have never had it so good because men say so God ordained Roles are divisive to women who stay home and those who work Role theory has systematically subjugated women It places too much burden on menor sole breadwinning and too much pressure on women to Computers find all they need to at home with children It perpetuates high levels of intolerance and are also extremely destructive the psyches of those with genetic same sex attraction If these roles are so sacred and important to keep where is Mother in Heaven and why are we deluded in to thinking that she is too precious and sacred to even acknowledge Doesn t she deserve to have a say in the parenting with than half the world s population isemale In Authority The mandate Before You for relying almost exclusively on priesthood leadersor spiritual direction provides too much control A History of the

in tact Lying intimidation secrecy and coercion are all The Benn Diaries Vol. 2 free gameor Men of God good ole boys club to use The methods used to excommunicate Ms Johnson were pretty horrifyingBottom Line This book was written years before the enacting of the Proclamation of the Family and gender roles were not yet considered doctrinal In recent years post women s movement and in the midst of gay rights gender roles have become doctrinal and even dogmatic or the Church and the New Right There are good men in the Church who believe in priesthood and try to act kindly and honorably I don t dispute that a belief in priesthood can guide and inspire them to be better people Nor do I dispute that women do so much good when they are home with their children I do however take issue with the assumption that having babies being is the same league as being take issue with the assumption that having babies being is the same league as being to act or and in the name of God To me perpetuating that assumption as Out from God and basing an entire system on that principleeels blatantly wrong and uneual to human beings I believe in an eual distribution of both male and The

feminist at the same time It is an impossible combination Either one is true oneself as a woman and to other women out of direct experience of beingemale or one is loyal to patriarchy s idea of what a woman is which comes out of men s direct experience of being male and benefiting The Eight Human Talents from the devotion and unpaid labor of women But women cannot serve two masters at once who are
