FEMWOCees Let Their Voices be Heard!

Tonight, at 7:00 p.m. MDT, the Salt Lake Tribune will host a panel discussion entitled “What Mormon Women Want.”  When the panel was initially announced, it did not include any women of color.  FEMWOC members, individually and collectively, expressed their views about this glaring omission to the Tribune and we are happy to announced that our own Mica McGriggs is now one of the featured panelists.

Despite our pleasure at the inclusion of Mica, we did not want to let this incident pass without expressing our views about the way the panel was selected and the way the event was publicized.  So, several of us collaborated on a letter to the Salt Lake Tribune.  Our letter was published in the paper this morning and is also available online.

Here is the link:
