"I Will Sing to the Lord" : Women's Songs in the Scriptures
Dialogue : A Journal of Mormon Thought
The first annual Women's Studies Conference was held at Brigham Young University, November 3-5, 2011. The theme was "Women and Creativity."
The scriptures include many references to creative women. However, most of the results of women's creative efforts have been lost to history. But one form of women's ingenuity has survived: contained within the canon itself are several examples of women's sacred songs. Here, Smith explores some of these songs and explains that sacred songs have been a central venue for women's theological activity.
