The last General Conference talk given by Sheri Dew was very insightful as well
as inspired. She explained, as only she can, that men and women are not in
competition against each other but have specialized talents that when combined
are powerful and vital in furthering the work of the kingdom.Much of
the world are tangled in a debate over issues that separate the genders and each
are competing for the supreme spot in the human race. The prophet Joseph Smith
tried to convey an understanding of equality that exists when each gender
concentrates on their individual strengths and works in harmony to make a whole.
Men without women are useless and women without men are lacking.Many contend that LDS women are second class. A century ago the complaint was
that LDS women didn't know their place -- some of the first female doctors
in this country were LDS women. I am so grateful for all that women do.
