Episode 69: Meet ZD Eve

Join Lisa as she interviews ZD Eve from the Mormon Feminist blog, ZelophehadsDaughters.

ZD Eve grew up in Utah Valley, the oldest of seven children who bickered incessantly but ultimately reconciled enough to form a Mormon feminist blog. Her passions in life are language, particularly lyric poetry, classical music, and the natural world. She now lives in the Midwest with her husband, daughter, and son, the last two of whom are vigorously preventing her from writing a dissertation on ritual and forms of grace in the English devotional poetry of the seventeenth century. She dates her Mormonism to her baptism at age eight and her Mormon feminism to her discovery of polygamy at age nine. She sometimes blogs at zelophehadsdaughters.com.
