45 years ago today - Sep 16, 1978

The first conference for LDS females over age eleven is broadcast over closed-circuit radio to meeting houses. Although not part of general conference, as is the male equivalent, this is the first step in giving LDS females a meeting similar to that which Mormon males have experienced since 1830. In Sept. 1993 this is divided into the Relief Society's and Young Women's "general meeting."
