Did Mormonism ruin your relationship with women like it did mine? Join April Carlson and I as we discuss Mormon Mean Girls! April is a mental health therapist who spends much of her time working with those in faith transitions, and girl does she see the interesting dynamic at work within Mormon Women. Did you think the Patriarchy only affected men? Oh Sister!!! It’s alive and well within our Visiting Teaching (er, Ministering) and our Enrichment nights! Feeling the pressure to conform within Relief Society? You are NOT alone! The loneliness, betrayal, and exclusion from your community is real. And it is toxic. It takes time to relearn how to trust women after transitioning out of an Orthodox Mormon community, and April and I are here to talk you through it! On Wednesdays, we wear whatever we want to! Proudly! And we do not conform! As always, please head over to Patreon to watch this important conversation with April!
