    The best thing to come from the Regenal Convention this summer, is to see Women used as Attendants at the end of the program. They were used in distributing the new publications to convention delegates.

    They've been using women for this for quite a number of years now.

    Wow. I'm genuinely shocked.

    Did they wear headcoverings?

    It only goes as far as wearing attendant badges to hand out books or watch the money boxes...under the watchful eye of a 'key brother'

    Nothing more. Any decisions etc have to be deferred to the male attendant alongside....

    In fact it means more to a "wannabee elders wife" than anyone else.

    Wow. What a giant step for no one. It is ridiculous to applaud so little so late.

    We belong on the GB, elders - you name it, women belong there just by virtue of our being. It is hard for me to respect any woman who allows men to subject her to their rule.

    Don't get too excited, they're not actually classified as Attendants.

    They don't get the same badge and I think they have to register as a +1 to a brother.

    This was the forst time that I saw this. I didn't know they had this for years now. I think that some sisters are doing some responsible work at Bethel.
