I think this article ignores the major impact of women in The Book of Mormon. Actually, they have an important role to play. Sariah, as the wife of Lehi, is very prominent in the earlier chapters of 1st Nephi. While the name of Nephi's wife is not given, her pleading for her husband when he is tied up on the ship, is also major in showing her dedication. Of course, the future vision of Mary, the mother of Jesus, gives her appropriate respect and reverence. The mothers of the stripling warriors also demonstrate the value of women in raising righteous children who will look to God and live -- and they did. The wife of King Lamoni, who Ammon declared, "there has not been such great faith among all the people of the Nephites." These are amazing examples of women in the Book of Mormon. We can learn much from them.
