equality does not mean sameness


“Men and women, though spiritually equal, are entrusted with different but equally significant roles. … Men are given stewardship over the sacred ordinances of the priesthood. To women, God gives stewardship over bestowing and nurturing mortal life, including providing physical bodies for God’s spirit children and guiding those children toward a knowledge of gospel truths. These stewardships, equally sacred and important, do not involve any false ideas about domination or subordination.”
Elder Russell M. Ballard
“The Sacred Responsibilities of Parenthood,” Ensign, Mar. 2006, 29–30
