A large audience gathered for one of two “Women’s Section” meetings at the Mennonite World Conference held in Kitchener, Ont., in 1962. The women met to consider the conference theme, “The Lordship of Christ,” from the perspective of personal faith and the home. They also heard presentations on women’s service in women’s organizations, on congregational and church boards, and through work and professions.
