New Young Women general leadership

The new presidency of the LDS Church's Young Women program was organized during General Conference in April 2008.  
Sister Dalton proclaimed that, “We have met with many government leaders and many have asked us what we have to offer for the young women in their nations,” she said. “We have stressed education, standards and virtue.” She said that when a person is virtuous they are free to do and accomplish many wonderful things.

She recounted that one leader from Africa saw the Church’s booklet, For the Strength of Youth, and asked for more copies in French. When Sister Dalton offered her four more, the government leader said, “Oh, I need boxes and boxes of this book for my country. This is what the women and young women need to help them rise up.”
