Hi, I’m Tresa. ...if our goal is to be a Zion people, we have to be of one heart and one mind. And that can never happen as long as women are kept apart from most decision making bodies. Studies show that more women in government changes the agenda, and as a church made up of human beings doing our very best to overcome our natural inclinations and perspectives, there is no reason to think that the same wouldn’t be true for us.
Hi, I'm Caitlin. We do not simply need one token woman to represent the needs of a diverse group of other women; we need women to have the opportunity to not only be present, but be entitled to the same privilege as men in these decision-making bodies, and especially to not feel they are “encroaching” on the men’s territory should they choose to be vocal in their opinions.
