(KSL News) Three new women leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints met with reporters today.
At an international news conference that went to church meetinghouses throughout the world, Elaine Dalton, Mary Cook and Ann Dibb were introduced as the new presidency of the Young Women's organization.
The Church's young women includes more than half a million girls 12 to 18 years old in 170 countries.
Dalton said, "We want young women all over the world, not just members of the Church, but all young women to join us because we will be doing extraordinary things, and we will be making a difference."
The women told reporters they hope to send a message to teenage girls about how important education is and to help them hold onto their religious standards.
