A Lovely Night on the Patio with Dorothy Allred Solomon

Dorothy Allred Solomon at The King’s English At what may have been the last of our outdoor events for the season, Dorothy Allred Solomon and lots of friends and family joined us for the debut of her new book, The Sisterhood: Inside the Lives of Mormon Women.

Well-spoken and lovely as always, Dorothy shared stories with us of her research into and discovery of a strong feminist historical path in the development of the LDS religion. According to Solomon, women in the early church were equals to the brethren inThe Sisterhood by Dorothy Allred Solomon almost every way. Over time many of the sacred privileges and responsibilities, especially those concerning women’s issues such as childbirth, have been stripped away. It is Solomon’s hope that as we move into the 21st century the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints will again recognize that women can play a strong role in the church without usurping the priesthood. If you missed Dorothy’s appearance she’ll return for our holiday party on Thursday, December 6th. Mark your calendars!

  1. It is a wonderful gift to our world to have visionary men and women in all religions and cultures. Dorothy Solomon is a credit to all visionary people who seek to educate and enlighten society and the variety of religious cultures within. Their is a harmonious and Divine Dance in the balance of power
    between the sexes and their obvious “riches” of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual growth. It is always refreshing to see women with vision in action! Dorothy Allred Solomon
    is one of these women, a “Divine Dancer” on the stage of life!

    I have really enjoyed Ms. Solomon’s book Predators, Prey, and Other Kinfolk. It is a careful but loving history of her family and personal story from a humble yet honesty viewpoint. I appreciated another point of view of polygamy, stretching beyond the usual stereotpyes and into the lives of interesting women.
