Love & Gender Equality at Home: Sunstone Symposium Audio
Last summer I was a first-time presenter at Salt Lake City Sunstone Symposium. I’m not sure what I was thinking submitting 2 separate presentation proposals right before a national book launch of The Assertiveness Guide for Women… but It turned out to be a very gratifying experience personally and professionally.

LOVE (AND GENDER EQUALITY)
AT HOME: A MODEL OF FAMILY
PRESENTER: JULIE DE AZEVEDO HANKS, PhD, LCSW, is a seasoned psychotherapist, owner of Wasatch
Family Therapy, and author of The Burnout Cure
and The Assertiveness Guide for Women.
ABSTRACT: Early relationship patterns lay the framework for our identity development, social interactions, and
assumptions about others. If gender equality is to
be achieved within Mormon culture and theology,
it must first be modeled in family relationships.
Cultural Transformation Theory provides a
framework for moving from a domination model
that values “masculine” over “feminine” to a
partnership model where relationships are based on connection and equality.
