Gender roles

“Women do possess distinctive, divine gifts and are given unique responsibilities, but those are not more—or less—important than men’s gifts and responsibilities. All are designed and needed to bring about Heavenly Father’s divine plan to give each of His children the best opportunity to fulfill his or her divine potential.” (Jean B. Bingham, Relief Society General President, “United in Accomplishing God’s Work,” General Conference, April 2020)

Satan “would have us believe men and women are so alike that our unique gifts are not necessary, or so different we can never hope to understand each other. Neither is true.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)

“Neither man nor woman is perfect or complete without the other. Thus, no marriage or family, no ward or stake is likely to reach its full potential until husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, men and women work together in unity of purpose, respecting and relying upon each other’s strengths.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)

“If we are going to build the kingdom of God, we as men and women of God must build each other.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)
