Here’s a look at the news for March 26.
1 in 5 Utah women have suffered intimate partner violence
A new report found that about 1 in 5 Utah women has been a victim of intimate partner violence, according to the Deseret News.
The findings come from a phone questionnaire that interviewed 10,000 Utahns.
However, only 15 percent of respondents said they sought help.
Deanna Ferrell, a violence and injury epidemiologist for the Utah Department of Health, told the Deseret News that victims don’t want to face the stereotype created by violence.
"They're scared to reach out and get help, so it's more likely to keep occurring," she told the Deseret News. "There aren't those social norms to talk about it and seek help when you are experiencing those things."
Thousands of Utahns rally for gun reform
On Saturday, thousands of Utahns joined the millions of Americans across the nation rallying for gun reform and safer schools, the Deseret News reported.

Salt Lake police said about 8,000 people protested on Saturday.
Alicia Walker Ferree attended a similar march in St. George.
"Everyone was enthusiastic and yelling. … It was extraordinary," she said. "I have eight grandchildren … five of them are now in public schools. And I just can’t imagine what it would be like to have a school shooting happen in one of their schools."
