45 years ago today - Aug 14, 1977

In an article in the Salt Lake Tribune General Relief Society President Barbara Smith is quoted as saying that she holds herself partly to blame for the confusion in the minds of many people between the conservative caucus activities and those of the Relief Society. As she put it, "I didn't say, 'Don't use the Relief Society.- Later a Mormon scholar writes: "One wonders, however, whether the Relief Society's tolerance of the use of its informal machinery for right-wing purposes was as innocent as is implied. If instead of the anti-feminist Phyllis Schafly report, the caucuses had distributed the latest pro-abortion flyer, would the Relief Society have remained as passive?"
