I am tired of people saying my faith denigrates women. These people engage mouth first and later (if at all) engage brain. These people think they know the facts when they don't. That said, I will now draw out for you a few things that, indeed, are fact.
"Elder James Talmage, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles has said, 'The world's greatest champion of woman and womanhood is Jesus the Christ.'" Daughters in My Kingdom, (2011) p. 3. This implies that the Savior loved, respected, taught, and forgave women; in other words, he treated men and women the same when it came to spiritual matters.
"The women in the ancient Church were dignified and noble, needed and valued. They served others, increased in personal holiness, and participated in the great work of saving souls. These patterns have been restored in the latter days through the organization of Relief Sciety." Daughters in My Kingdom, (2011) p.7
"The Prophet Joseph Smith declared, 'The Church was never perfectly organized until the women were thus organized.'" Daughters in My Kingdom, (2011) p. 7. Joseph Smith had to have both respect and admiration for women to say that.
After His resurrection, He first appeared to a woman (John 20:1-18). While suffering on the cross, He entrusted His mother's care to a disciple (John 19:25-27). He did this to ensure His mother would be taken care of. At that time, it was not acceptable for women to make there own livelihoods.
"Most of all, I am grateful for who you are: a treasured daughter of our Heavenly Father with infinite worth." The Remarkable Soul of a Woman, (2010) p. 5. Does that sound like denigration to you?
