The purpose behind our next call to action is to send the message to Church leaders that we celebrate women, in all their diversity.
We need our leaders to know that we are inspired by messages of heterogenity, not homogenity; messages of diversity, not conformity. We want them to know that we embrace women, whatever their marital status, whatever their career path, whatever their ethnicity, politics or socio-economic status. The more types of Mormons the Church has, the healthier the body of Christ is.
Please email Scott Swofford at the Missionary Department at Church Headquarters to tell him why you appreciate the profiles of women on Mormon.org.

Also, let’s show both the Mormon world and our non-LDS neighbors that Mormon women are not a monolithic entity. Create a profile at Mormon.org and identify yourself as a feminist, a progressive, a social activist, a libertarian, a birthing rights advocate, a survivor, a career woman, a visionary, etc. Whatever makes you the individual that you are.
Be open about the things that inspire you about Mormonism. Perhaps it’s Heavenly Mother, or the idea of the eternal progression of all humans, male and female. Perhaps it’s our feisty Mormon foremothers who fought for suffrage alongside Susan B. Anthony. Perhaps it’s the idealism behind the United Order, that there be no poor among us. Check out this great profile of WAVE’s own Chelsea as example of what Mormon.org is willing to put up. http://www.mormon.org/me/28TV-eng/Chelsea
