The Proclamation to the World says that there are “primary” roles for men and women, but that men and women are “obligated” to help one another in these roles as “equal partners”. That seems to mean that, although primary roles exist, they are not to define exclusively what we do and “separate” us; rather, we are to unite and work together across the natural distinctions of gender to become equal partners. It seems to say that the most important thing is not the primary distinctions but rather the obligation to erase those distinctions in practical terms by creating a unique and real partnership.
