An Insider's Look at Mormon Culture

Ordaining Women

Mormons, of course, are not the only denomination that does not ordain women. Still, more and more women are attending divinity schools. Those who belong to churches which do not ordain women as ministers find employment as chaplains, social workers, counselors, and professors.

In this segment from the PBS series, Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, Serene Jones, the first woman president of Union Theological Seminary in New York discusses the role of women in the ministry and the changes she sees happening in American religious practice.
