The Mom’s March for America is a national gathering of mothers that WOW supports. It’s purpose is to bring recognition to the powerful influence of mothers in our homes, communities, and nation. In addition, the event’s purpose is to help Moms, “raise the bar of decency, civility, and liberty in our culture”. The main event is centered  in Omaha, Nebraska, and broadcast live so you can join the march wherever you are, but cities across America are hosting local events in support. Utah’s event is located in Bountiful. Go to for more information.

“This is not a march walking down the street, shouting and carrying signs. This is a Cultural March; a celebration of the biggest cultural movement happening in America – the march that mothers make every day in their homes, neighborhoods, and businesses as they nurture their families, influence their communities and shape our nation.”

Utah HB 246 Dies

Comprehensive Sexuality Education will not be coming to Utah children this year. Worldwide Organization for Women is calling the defeat of Utah’s HB246 yesterday a victory for Utah parents, citizens as well as the legislators in the state, who remain determined to protect the consciences of our children.  WOW sends a big thank you to all those who responded to our “action alert.” The buzz at the capitol suggested that House Education Committee members received hundreds of messages in the hours leading up to the meeting. One intern told a WOW board member that her representative had over 600 emails come to him.  The room was filled to capacity and overflowed into the lobby. Opponents of the bill were given large yellow stickers that could be seen dotted throughout the entire room. The floor time given to those opposed to the bill was very limited and short. Those who spoke at the meeting against the bill demonstrated the difference between teaching about reproductive health and disease prevention appropriately versus a harmful pleasure- based-sexuality approach to the subject, which the bill would have introduced.  WOW was able to issue a very brief statement.

The WOW board would like to recognize Family Watch International, The Eagle Forum, United Families, Big Ocean Women and other organizations, plus the dozens of individuals who collaborated to help stop HB246. We also want to thank our President, Nicholeen Peck for her many days & hours spent at the Utah Capitol contacting and speaking with Representatives.
