General Women’s Meeting


These addresses were given at the General Women’s Meeting held Saturday evening, September 24, in the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. Latter-day Saint women and girls ten and older filled the Tabernacle and Assembly Hall on Temple Square and gathered in meetinghouses to view the proceedings by television or satellite coverage. Many more in regions throughout the Church may receive videotapes of the program.

With the theme “A Season for Strength,” the program included music by a multiregion women’s chorus, prerecorded taped segments, and talks by the following speakers: President Gordon B. Hinckley, Second Counselor in the First Presidency; Sister Barbara B. Smith, Relief Society general president; Sister Elaine A. Cannon, Young Women general president; and Sister Dwan J. Young, Primary general president.
