Title Fixing Utah's Rape Problem: Cultural Elite and Expert Perspectives on Sexual Assault Prevention Programming in Utah
Creator Chelsea Kilpack
Subject MACL
Description This project explores the Utah-specific barriers to implementing sexual assault prevention programming in Utah's public schools from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Experts on prevention made recommendations for comprehensive sex education that include age-appropriate curriculum, parental involvement, and modules on consent, gender roles, and healthy interpersonal relationships. Cultural elites were interviewed to gather their reaction to expert suggestions, which helped identify barriers to implementation (the LDS Church, generational concerns), and also helped identify opportunities for change. Some barriers to change include lack of female legislators, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and a generational hesitance to talk about sex.
