More women's issues

Yesterday, Peggy Fletcher Stack of the Salt Lake Tribune published an article on the Mormon lactivism issue that has recently been brought to the forefront of the discussion again. I'm in it! And I love Jenne's last word. And as always, good journalism needs a catchy headline.

Kirby weighed in on the topic as well.

Also, I've been watching the 3-part PBS documentary series Makers: Women Who Make America. It's good stuff. If you've got 3 hours to spend knitting or jogging or whatever, watch it. I've even shown some of it to Margaret and talked about some of the issues- like how ridiculous it would be to think women would grow moustaches if they ran marathons!

Seriously, watch it. I think it would be great for high schoolers studying US history and current events.
