Last week, Elizabeth Smart spoke at a human trafficking forum about her 9 months as a kidnap and sexual assault victim. She said one reason she didn't run away was a story she remembered that equated a girl that had sex to a chewed stick of gum that no one would want. It's an object lesson on purity that many LDS women recognize and it's sparked a conversation on the language we use to discuss chastity, sex and a woman's worth. Wednesday, Doug is joined by Mormon writer Joanna Brooks and others to talk about it and we hope to hear from you as well.
