Meeting the demand for a full and complete humanity

As International Women’s Day is celebrated all over the world on March 8, and Women’s History Month is celebrated in March in the United States, we find we are growing into a world demanding that both men and women be honored equally. We can rejoice with every step of progress on this front, realizing with great sobriety the steps we need to continue making.

Gender equality stands as one of the most important indicators of the health and progress in our nations, in our communities and families. A more spiritual view of womanhood is needed for humanity to reach its full potential and to experience equality and sustainable reform. As the reflection of God, both men and women are strong and wise. They reflect the loving Father-Mother described by Moses in the Bible as a mother eagle who “stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, … beareth them on her wings” (Deuteronomy 32:11); and in Isaiah, we read this loving assurance from God: “As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you” (66:13).
