“Thank you for writing to Adventist World magazine. We value the responses and opinions of our readers.
I can assure you there were many women in attendance at the Annual Council, from our General Conference office and from around the world—many of those in leadership positions are women. Just a quick glance at the Yearbook in the listing of GC employees gave me 4 or 5 on the first few pages. That is only a fraction! So yes, the photos do not reflect the attendance. However, that does not hinder the voice of the entire membership being heard.
Again, thanks for writing—and may God continue to bless you as you serve Him every day.”
So, if there in fact were women at the Annual Council, was the photographer just sexist?
