I think it's pretty easy to say that the church empowers women in Sierra Leone when it is one of the most repressive countries in the world in regards to human rights. Empowering women looks different in a country like the USA and while I don't think the church holds women back here, I think there are individuals in the church who use the church to do so. Just ask a woman in the church who has an abusive husband and she is "counselled" so stay with him by her bishop.

The Church may empower women, but the members may not.

I am still surprised that in a church where women perform temple ordinances without being ordained, redeeming the dead, and teaching seminary, there are still members that think the local men holding the Priesthood hold more privileges.

Nonsense. If a bishop is informed by a woman that her husband is abusive, the bishop will contact authorities to report it immediately. Actually, I believe this is required by law.
