Untitled[edit]

This article is very interesting. Here is a woman who is very accomplished, has spoken a great deal, has written a great deal, has influenced for good the lives of many people- and half of this article is about a little speech she gave and the people who overreacted to it. I will have to add more to this article in the near future to make it better represent this great woman. Isaac Crumm 08:34, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Please do.  Right now, the article needs some serious improvement. — John 15:10, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

I have personally heard Sheri speak, and have read many of her books. She has always spoken in very unifying, uplifting, and inspiring terms. It's unfortunate that one misconstrued point from one poorly phrased passage of a speech is the only detail some care to remember about this remarkable woman!

Someone please edit or remove this paragraph: "Other angry bloggers hurled attacks at Sheri, which were completely unrelated to any of her comments. Despite these personal attacks, she never retaliated." The paragraph seems vague, to say the least. It's also sexist, because it refers to Dew as "Sheri".

Expansion / POV[edit]

Requesting that more information be added to Dew's biography. More time is given to one speech than to the entirety of the article's other content. The article appears rather biased by this imbalance. She has given far more than one speech, and there is far more biographical information available than is presented in this article. Katquack (talk) 19:16, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

As far as I can see, most non-LDS-Church-centric sources have only mentioned her in the context of the controversial speech. It looks like there is other bio information from sources published by the LDS Church or Deseret Book, but it's fairly garden variety stuff—birth place, family, positions held in the LDS Church, and so forth.

Sheri L. Dew is a prolific speaker and writer. The entry treats only a single, contentious issue. Needs more content and more balanced content. Ewbritton (talk) 09:36, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

What additional information did you have in mind? Good Ol’factory (talk) 22:03, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
