Women and Awards

In Sunday's Tribune, Holly Mullen talks about women being shut out of awards in Salt Lake City. That's her main point, but strangely she does not really argue it. She gives no evidence for her assertion other than the "Giant in Our City" awards. Consider, however the last two people that won that award. Jon Huntsman Sr, and Gordon B. Hinckley are two local citizens who truly have no real peers in this city. So who was overlooked for this award? I don't know enough about local awards to know whether women are systematically overlooked. Holly assumes we will believe that they are, but she should offer some actual evidence. That would make an interesting story.
