A Feminist Polygamist?

Can a woman be a feminist and involved in a polygamist relationship at the same time?

Continued from previous page


Joseph isn’t the only polygamist standing a stand for social acceptance. If you were to look at reality TV’s show ” Sister Wives,” it would appear there is a community of women who insist their polygamist relationships are happy, modern, and mutually-beneficial. This show features the Brown family, comprised of husband Kody and wives Meri, Janelle, Christine, Robin, and their sixteen children.

While there are moments of jealousy and grief in the Brown family, all four wives are quick to point out their strong sense of community. They praise their built-in friends and built-in daycare. Watch an episode of this show, and you will be hard-pressed to find any of the wives portraying polygamy as anything but a shining example of the American dream.

At least while the cameras are rolling.
