Dialogue Out Loud #10: Assuming Power by Linda Hoffman Kimball

I remember walking past an institute class in Cambridge. I heard Judy Dushku saying that when her colleagues at the college where she taught asked her, “How can you be a Mormon and a feminist?” she replied, “Of course I’m a feminist! It’s because I’m Mormon!” To me that sounded just right. Shouldn’t everyone—male and female—be a feminist if it means allowing each individual to achieve “the measure of their creation”?

Linda Hoffman Kimball pens this lovely personal essay about her recognizing, owning, and asserting her God-given powers.
