Women to Join Key, Leading LDS Church Councils

The LDS Church has added women to three major committees, a historic development that gives women significant, permanent, official voices in church leadership.

Church leaders changed the name of the faith's Priesthood Executive Council to the Priesthood and Family Executive Council and invited the church's Relief Society General President, Sister Linda K. Burton, to sit on the council.

The General Young Women President, Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, will join the Missionary Executive Council.

The General Primary President, Sister Rosemary Wixom, will be on the Temple and Family History Executive Council.
