Audio for this story is unavailable.

Since the founding of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1830, only men have been allowed to be ordained as priests. As Dan Bammes of KUER reports, a chorus of women has been asking church leaders to reconsider that policy. One Mormon feminist, in particular, has just been expelled from the church for her activism.
