Re: “High-tech companies here in Utah often import many of their female workers from out of state” (The Tribune, April 10).

Discrimination is a word that is often used in Utah because of unique cultural issues where men have always dominated in most leadership roles. Utah’s unequaled role between men and women may be identified as phenomenal, especially in its religious control and context.

In this context, a man might ask himself, how superior do I believe I am to my mother, my wife, my daughter or my sister, especially in leadership roles?

Until some of these beliefs and behaviors are examined and found to be faulty, most women will continue to be second class citizens especially in leadership roles and especially in Utah.
