'This paper provides a general history of the involvement of the Relief Society and MIA, later renamed the Young Women's organization, in the National Council of Women. Looking at the span of the history and comparing early and late involvement, many important trends, similarities, and changes emerge. Little scholarship has been written on this council and even less on Latter-day Saint involvement, especially about the period following the initial two decades of participation. Because of limited time and resources and also to highlight the experience of Mormon women, I have focused my research on the writings of the Latter-day Saints who were personally involved in council work.'
