Any misconception about gender does not come from God, it comes from the Father of Lies, Satan himself. Feminists are fighting a lie. I think more good could be done by focusing on God’s truths as revealed to his prophets about gender roles than on creating something or “progressing” to an equality that already exists. Sameness is not equality, it is sameness. If you want to bring more equality to the world, try sharing the beautiful truths found in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ as found within his church. Here’s some of those beautiful truths I’ll share a link: http://www.lds.org/general-conference/19 96/10/the-joy-of-living-the-great-plan-o f-happiness?lang=eng&query=gender+roles

“Our Heavenly Father endowed His sons and daughters with unique traits especially fitted for their individual responsibilities as they fulfill His plan. To follow His plan requires that you do those things He expects of you as a son or daughter, husband or wife. Those roles are different but entirely compatible. In the Lord’s plan, it takes two—a man and a woman—to form a whole. Indeed, a husband and wife are not two identical halves, but a wondrous, divinely determined combination of complementary capacities and characteristics.” Elder Richard G. Scott, modern day Apostle.

Why don’t these women display the “courage of their convictions” and go start a church of their own?

Really if anyone does judge you for wearing pants to church, they should re-evaluate things. I’ve never felt I was forced to wear a dress and seeing as I am not a “feminist,” I’ve never had a problem with wearing a dress to church or anywhere else. I do as I please when it comes to fashion and clothing. The whole idea of feminism is silly to me! And I feel sorry for those LDS women that don’t understand their divine role and who have not received confirmation from Heavenly Father of their individual worth and His definition of what it means to be one of His daughters. Women are precious in his eyes. We are equal if not distinct from men and both genders have important roles to play in God’s plan for His children. It’s sad when people use old, worn out definitions for women and men. The very idea that women are not equal is old and needs to be retired. Feminism attempts to stir up an already settled score. It was settled in the Garden when Eve led out and partook of the fruit, and probably before that. Women are God’s crowning achievement and bring life and glory to all his creations.
We are so blessed that in the US and most places around the world, women are free to do as they please. Gender inequality for places other than in Islam,in my opinion, is a myth. Progressives, you are welcome to make “progress” in the LDS church. Just please don’t expect others to take your same view of “progress.”

No one cares.
