One of the defining characteristics of the Gospel of Luke is that it contains gender pairs, meaning that the same story or event happens twice–once to a man and once to a woman.
Virtually no history (or anything like unto it, as a gospel surely is) is written this way; almost all have a male-focused perspective. We’re so used to reading histories that neglect women that we don’t even notice it: to a worm in horseradish, the entire world is horseradish.
Which is why you should support Ardis Parshall’s Kickstarter for her history of the LDS church which focuses on women’s stories and perspectives. Not only is this project intrinsically worthwhile, but only $50 gets you a signed print copy of the book along with other goodies. This text will be a gift to the entire LDS community, not the least of which (although they are sometimes treated that way) are the young women who need to be able to see themselves in active roles in the church.
The laborer is worthy of her hire (if you aren’t reading Keepapitchinin, you should be). Go support She Shall Be An Ensign right now.
