10/23/07: Mothers Who Know
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Earlier this month at the LDS Church's General Conference, the head of the Relief Society Julie B. Beck praised the power in motherhood. She encouraged women not to postpone having children, and equated nurturing with homemaking. Her words re-ignited a controversy about the role of Mormon women, and within hours, LDS blogs were inundated with responses. Tuesday on RadioWest, Doug talks to LDS women about Beck's remarks and what those say about women's position in the LDS Church and culture.
