Voices in Harmony: Contemporary Women Celebrate Plural Marriage The panelists in this session have recently co-authored a groundbreaking book, Voices in Harmony: Contemporary Women Celebrate Plural Marriage, which collects personal essays from one hundred women who currently live, have lived, or support the principle of plural marriage. One of the reasons the book is significant is that the authors have chosen to put their names on the work. In so doing, they become, by default, become some of the very few public faces of plural marriage, interviewing with countless reporters and publications. They have also recently helped push through changes in Utah family law. At a time when the term ‘fundamentalist Mormon” is being treated by many as an oxymoron, these women are challenging stereotypes and general perceptions about those of Mormon heritage who still practice this principle. Each panelist will speak on a different aspect of plural marriage. There will also be ample opportunity to ask questions.
