"Prairie Muffin Manifesto"?
Is anyone at EW familiar with "The Prairie Muffin Manifesto"?

Here's the link: http://buriedtreasurebooks.com/PrairieMuffinManifesto.php

Is this a group, a model, a mindset, denomination, worldview, a loose association...?

    Check out http://truewomanhood.wordpress.com/ for a now seven part discussion they have been having about the prairie muffin manifesto. Be forewarned ... it is hefty reading as each post has registered upwards of 750 comments.

    I don't understand your question. Could you rephrase it?

    I just had a thought -

    Are you asking us to define the people who follow this document?

    I've never even heard of them before, and I really can't say what sort of box they fit into.

    It does make me wonder what kind of manifesto we here at Emerging Women would write, though. :)

    Rephrase:

    Does anyone know the history of this document - where it originated and why?

    The PM Manifesto is posted/written by one author, but it's phrased in such a way as to imply group adherence. My question is, what group? Or is this just a loose affiliation of like-minded individuals? You'd probably have to wander over to the PM link to see what I mean.

    I don't know, Euodia, although it made for... interesting... reading. It looks to me like a list of points compiled from suggestions made by a group of people.

    If you'd really like to know, Molly at Adventures in Mercy might know something about it. She's a recovered "Prarie Muffin" type who was deep in. (http://adventuresinmercy.wordpress.com/)
