A special conference votes for a new First Presidency and new Relief Society presidency, with men standing by priesthood quorums and women standing as a group. "This was the first time women had been honored in being presented before the solemn assembly in that way." In 1995 solemn assembly females vote according to membership in auxiliaries.
