If you would like to submit a profile to be posted on our website, please email your information to email@example.com, using the following format: first name, some brief biographical information that humanizes you and identifies your connection to Mormonism–your hobbies, talents, interests, employment, vocation and, particularly, your church service–and a personal statement about why you believe women should be ordained. If you feel comfortable doing so, we encourage you to add a brief statement as to why you’re Mormon and what Mormonism means to you.
Your profile should capture your thoughts, but be concise. Approximately 500 words, or less, is sufficient. It should end with the statement, “I believe women should be ordained.” Please attach several photos (at least 965 pixels wide). Short videos explaining your feelings about the ordination of women are also encouraged and can be uploaded by sending us a link to your Youtube or Vimeo video.
We are not soliciting, nor do we support, diatribes against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We encourage thoughtful submissions on what the ordination of women would mean to you personally and/or for the institutional Church. We welcome those who are faithful Mormons, those who might return to the Church but for gender inequality, or those who care deeply about the Church and its members and are concerned about how gender inequality affects all of us. Please note that all profiles will be edited for content and style.
Reactions from local Church leaders are impossible to predict or to control. We are unable to predict how local leaders will react. You should carefully weigh the personal consequences you might face and take them into account before submitting a profile to the Ordain Women website. Your profile can be removed, however, if it becomes problematic for you to have it up. Your full name and contact information will be kept completely confidential.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about submitting your profile!
