21 minutes, 40 seconds.

That’s how many minutes the only two women speaking at General Conference last weekend took, combined.

2 out of 33 talks.  

I have nothing to say about this that hasn’t already been said again, and again, and again.  

Ladies, your Church leaders don’t respect you, they don’t think you have anything interesting to say, they don’t see you as equals.  They don’t.

If they did, they’d behave differently.  Full stop.  This isn’t hard.  Don’t be blind.

Last April, they sat you down in a Women’s Session to tell you not to talk about Heavenly Mother or trust your own experiences of her.  This April, they just pretty much shut you up.  And they invited your friends and families and your own children and the whole world to watch them do it.
