Ask a feminist...

Our interview series continues today with “Ask a feminist...” 

“Feminism” is a lighting-rod word that is often maligned and often misunderstood. In fact, I find I am reluctant to identify myself as a feminist, partly because I fear being misjudged, and partly because I’m not entirely sure what it means. 

Whenever I have questions about feminism, I turn to my friend Dianna Anderson. Dianna is the creative mind behind the Be The Change blog. She may be young, but she is super smart, perceptive, and great at explaining what it really means to be a feminist.

Dianna is originally from Sioux Falls, SD, and has a BA in theology/philosophy from the University of Sioux Falls and a Master's in English Literature from Baylor University, in Waco, TX. After bouncing around to Japan and back to Sioux Falls, Dianna now calls Chicago her home. She works for the Christian Reformed Church of North America in the media ministry branch, though she is not Reformed herself. Her day job is as a line producer for a radio program aimed at ESL listeners around the world. She blogs about feminism and theology here, and you can follow her on Twitter here.

You know the drill: If you have a question for Dianna, leave it in the comment section. At the end of the day, I’ll pick the top seven or eight questions and send them to her for her response. We'll post her responses next week.  Be sure to take advantage of the “like” feature so that we can get a sense of what questions are of most interest to readers. Please remember the point of our interview series is not to debate or challenge, but to ask the sort of questions that will help us understand one another better.

You can check out the rest of our interview series, which includes an atheist, a pagan, a nun, a Mormon, a Mennonite, a Calvinist, anevolutionary creationist, a humanitarian, an environmentalist, a gay Christian, a Unitarian Universalist, an  Orthodox Christian, a Pentecostal, many more here
