When you’re young, and even when you’re older, conversations about sexual health can be difficult. But for adolescents and teens, especially, there is a lot at stake.

In Utah, there are six women to 29 men in the Senate and 10 women to 75 men in the House. And, of course, it’s a super-Mormon Republican majority. A whopping 88 percent are LDS. This lack of diversity costs Utah women — women of all races and creeds — and the state, big time. A recent focus group, for Women in the Economy Commission, showed that child care is the ...
