Mormon Women Project profiles rich diversity of LDS women

Reflecting the global growth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Mormon Women Project seeks to showcase the rich diversity of the roughly 7 million Latter-day Saint women around the world.

The website features profiles of LDS women from all walks of life and backgrounds united by a common sisterhood of faith and spirituality.

Native New Yorker and site founder Neylan McBaine credits her background and experiences as the catalyst for the launching of the Mormon Women Project.
