Q: What is an example of how the equality of women and men is visible in the Baha'i community? A: Governance in Bahá'í communities springs from the grassroots. Once a year a Local Spiritual Assembly of nine persons is elected to oversee the affairs of the Bahá'í community in a city or town. Current available figures show that 56.2% of US Local Spiritual Assembly members are female, and 43.2% are male. "Women and men have been and will always be equal in the sight of God." ~Baha'u'llah
