Ordain Women, a movement to open the all-male LDS priesthood to females, imagines a very different future for their faith — one with gender equity at every level.
But you can't be what you can't see, as the saying goes, so OW organizers have created a series of photo illustrations to help Mormons picture women healing the sick — as they did in the past and as these feminists hope the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will allow again someday.
One shows an image of a bonnet-clad woman, laying hands on a seated woman; another shows a bedridden woman being given a healing blessing by two pioneer-clothed women. A third shows a modern woman laying hands on a pregnant peer. And a fourth depicts two women and a man with their hands on the head of a seated woman.
