Feminism is not a “females only” club. Many men belong, too.

“Guys Who Get It: The Men of the Women’s Movement”
Marlo Thomas, writing for the Huffington Post, reminds many of us—and perhaps makes others of us aware for the first time— that not only women choose to be feminists. Many men are feminists, too. (Some of these male feminists are in our own organization, EEWC-Christian Feminism Today, as illustrated in Gary Tandy’s recent article, “My Path to Christian Feminism.”)  For other related reading, see Don Hazen’s article, “Feminism Should be Celebrated, Not Junked—One Man’s Opinion” on AlterNet, and the video, “Man Prayer,” by Eve Ensler.

Letha Dawson Scanzoni
Letha Dawson Scanzoni (1935-2024) was an independent scholar, writer, and editor, and the author or coauthor of nine books. In 1978, she and Virginia Ramey Mollenkott wrote Is the Homosexual My Neighbor?, one of the earliest books urging evangelical Christians to rethink their views on homosexuality (updated edition, 1994, HarperOne). More recently, Letha coauthored (with social psychologist David G. Myers) What God Has Joined Together: The Christian Case for Gay Marriage (HarperOne, 2005 and 2006). Another of Letha’s most well-known books is All We’re Meant to Be: Biblical Feminism for Today, coauthored with Nancy A. Hardesty (Word Books, 1974; revised edition, Abingdon, 1986; updated and expanded edition, Eerdmans, 1992). Letha served as editor of Christian Feminism Today in both its former print edition (EEWC Update) and its website for 19 years until her retirement in December 2013.
