Finding Faith and Virtue in Resistance

From its inception, members of Ordain Women have engaged in faithful agitation for gender equality. In response, some LDS Church leaders have characterized them as neither faithful nor virtuous. A few church leaders have even imposed ecclesiastical discipline on Ordain Women supporters and board members. Despite this, Ordain Women believes that true faithfulness and virtue can be found in the questioning of and even resistance to church policies, practices, and procedures that result in inequity, marginalization, and exclusion.
