Replacing the RS and YW semi-annual meetings will be a new General Women’s meeting for those 8 years of age and up. It will be conducted by the General Presidencies of the Relief Society, Young Women, and Primary organizations.
I’m very happy to see this change. We have many spiritual and talented women in our Church, and we have not used them as best we can. With allowing more young women to serve missions at 19, and encouragement to use the Ward Councils and the sisters for guidance and church work, we are beginning to hasten the work. Now, mothers will be able to take their daughters to their Conference session, just as we have with Priesthood.
