Relief Society declaration
In March of 1997 the San Francisco Chronicle reported the following:
“Women have their place,” [President of the Mormon Church Gordon B. Hinckley] said. “When all is said and done, there’s no substitute for having a woman in the home. . . . If you ask our women, you’ll find them happy with what they have. They’re not out yelling and chanting.”
Apparently, to help keep Mormon women in “their place,” a new proclamation for Mormon women appeared in September of 1999, known as the “Relief Society Declaration.” However, not all Mormon women have been kept in their defined place. Here is one example.
