Stackhouse, the author of Finally Feminist, presents an exegetical model for understanding the oppression of women in Christianity. His way out of patriarchy and into egalitarianism–while still maintaining the authority of scripture–is one that does (and should) appeal to many evangelicals. And it isn’t hard to see how, with minor tweaking, his argument could work in a Mormon context. I’d love to see y’all explore in the comments here how that might play out.
Bauer’s reflections on the relationship between women’s rights, gay rights, slavery, and the slippery slope argument are also intriguing.
That’s all I’m going to say–I want you to go read the review and then return and report.
