Four Mormon women begin graduate school at Harvard Divinity School this week.
It’s a historical moment, because the acceptance of four Mormon women to HDS at the same time is an unprecedented event.
We think this is a big deal. Don’t get me wrong–we’re not a big deal. But we’re witnessing, in this moment more than ever, a wave of Mormon women interested in pursuing theology at the university. We’re watching unprecedented opportunities open up for Mormon women both within and without the church.
The four of us–Amy, Kim, Emily and myself–feel God calling us to a certain space. We see Him paving a way for each of us. We’ve been given the gift to pursue our vocation at one of the best divinity schools in the nation. We sense work ahead, and we’re grateful.
