Title: ‘Utah ranks 3rd in US for most self-employed women’

Good. Excellent!

And yet majority in Utah does not want women to wear pants.

Utah has the highest birth rate, youngest average age, second youngest average marriage age, highest average household size and a general cultural norm that emphasizes "No success in life can compensate for failure in the home".

It does not surprise me that many women no longer have to choose between family life and work and choose to do both. The social medium of the internet has afforded many a wide variety of options to interact with others and provide a service that earns an income. It allows mothers to care for the little ones and the freedom to choose their own hours.

One of my favorites is the Kansas woman who built a fake website as a joke advertising genuine western tumbleweeds. When orders started coming in she was shocked. The Japanese are her biggest customers as they love anything to do with the old west. She pays her nephews to harvest the product, and makes $40,000 a year in her spare time.

My guess is they are just counting all of the MLM members.

Is this good news or bad news?

I thought LDS women were encouraged to NOT work outside the home?

So much for the traditional marriage status. The legislature should pass the Mom Stay at Home Act to stop this.
