The first in our series Feminism 101, Mona Corwin and I talk about the first wave of feminism, the key players, and the motivation behind the movement. How did women get here? We go back to the roots of feminism so we can go forward with a new understanding of the state of affairs for women!
Mona Corwin is a mentor, author, international speaker, podcaster, and host of the Liftable TV Network Show, “MomsLikeUs Do ThingsLikeThis.”
After 25 years of coaching moms, she founded The MomsLikeUs Academy: A trusted online space where moms learn skills, strategies, and systems that help them crush it at motherhood instead of letting motherhood crush them–all from a Christian worldview.
Mona’s Motto is: “Motherhood isn’t a natural talent. It’s a skill and you CAN Learn it!”
Mona has been studying biblical womanhood and the feminist movement for over ten years. Her book “The UnStoppable Generation: Are We the Ones We’ve Been Waiting For?” is a result of that work.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
At the age of 18, I was recovering from an eating disorder, cutting, and suicide when I read Jennifer Strickland’s book Girl Perfect and it changed my life. At the age of 33, as I travel the world reaching youth for the gospel, this is the only book I recommend to girls who are struggling. The Lord has truly anointed Jennifer’s words through her story, not only to address the struggles of today’s generation of girls, but also to walk them through the healing necessary for victory.
Jennifer is a captivating speaker. She keeps the listener hanging in wonder of what’s coming next! Her presentation is not only absorbing, it reveals the truth of God’s power to heal a wounded spirit.
Barbara Brown, Former Stonecroft Ministries Regional Representative, San Diego, CA
“The ‘P’ word [perfection] may be the heaviest burden women bear. All the misguided things we do to attain it can keep us away from what we need most – the unconditional love of God the Father. The Girl Perfect Study Guide gives you a map to the wholeness you were created for.”
Nancy Ortberg, author and former teaching pastor at Willow Creek Community Church
“The Girl Perfect Study Guide shatters the lies girls and women believe and points to the ultimate truth, which really does set us free. I am confident that this study will help thousands discover a beauty, purpose, and worth that truly lasts. Thank you Jen for exposing the ‘perfect life’ and inviting girls to experience God’s ‘perfect love.'”

One of the best testaments to what Jennifer is doing for the young girls and women of today is a comment from my eleven-year-old granddaughter: “Grammy, I want to read this book and hear her again. She’s good and I learned a lot.” This is exactly what I experienced from a grown-up perspective when I was introduced to Jennifer Strickland’s amazing story. Read it and see if you don’t get the real story from an icon model and a powerful speaker of truth.”
