Question: Who is more important to God’s plan of happiness, women or men?
Trick question! Both are equally essential. Both have specific attributes and responsibilities.
In some cultures, women are treated as inferior. But Jesus Christ made it very clear that this should not be the case—the Mar. 2023 For the Strength of Youth magazine includes an article about how the Savior treated the women in His life.1 And women should not be antagonistic against all men, either!
As a pioneer Church leader named Eliza R. Snow once wrote, “These are two extremes, and between them is the ‘golden mean.’”2
What can you do to help make sure that both women and men are treated respectfully in your community and culture?
