    This was a very interesting one because it does seem that there is great room for feminism in plural families. In conversations with people many of who are not involved in Mormonism at all, they see families with more than one woman to make a lot of sense. At 1:01 you spoke of women in plural familes being able to be with each other sexually and though this is not the norm in Mormon fundamentalism it seems to make great sense as something that would create closeness and remove the sense of patriarchy from the situation.
