Naomi: Single in Botswana
This episode explores the oral life history of Naomi, a convert from Botswana, who navigates the challenges of Latter-day Saint single life in a context where societal norms and parental expectations sometimes conflict with church chastity standards. Taunalyn Ford joins Caroline in a discussion about Naomi’s oral history, sexuality norms, and single Latter-day Saint women. Taunalyn is a fellow at the Maxwell Institute at Brigham Young University. Her dissertation explores the lives of Latter-day Saints in India.
