The purpose of Exponent II is to provide a forum for Mormon women to share their life experiences in an atmosphere of trust and acceptance. This exchange allows us to better understand each other and shape the direction of our lives. Our common bond is our connection to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and our commitment to women. We publish this paper as a living history in celebration of the strength and diversity of women.
Double our Ex2: Subscription Drive
Our organization has a goal of doubling our subscription rate over the next three years. If you have let your subscription lapse, would you please renew? If you are a current reader, would you please consider gifting a subscription to a loved one? We depend on our supporters to advertise and share Exponent II for us, because it’s the only way we can reach the women who need our organization.
In the past year, we have published an article comparing the cross-cultural identities of Mormon feminists and Filipino-Americans; a personal narrative of the search for the divine feminine through the Virgin Mary, Saint Hildegard Von Bingen, and Bernadette Soubirous; a lesson plan for a church class on the history of women in the LDS church; a heartbreaking testimony by a young woman who came out as gay to her ward in Sacrament Meeting; a fictional piece based on the scriptural story of Jael and Deborah; and dozens of other personal essays, poetry, artist features, and more. If you don’t want to miss this, or if you want to share it with friends or family, go to our Exponent II store today and subscribe. Learn more about our Subscription Drive
Preview the Magazine
So what does the magazine have to offer that’s worth the cost of subscription? We have put together 24 pages of content from the last several issues so that you can get a sense of what Exponent II does.
A single issue is typically 40 pages and includes 4-5 personal essays, poetry, and 3-4 of our features–Global Zion, Sabbath Pastorals, Exponent Generations, Flannel Board, Women’s Theology, and more. We are extremely proud of the art — all by Mormon women — that accompanies the essays and we use a high-quality print that highlights the beauty of the artwork. The articles are carefully gathered and arranged to create a narrative from beginning to end. This results in a dialogue within every issue as articles speak to one another and spark new ideas and meanings.
