Due to wage inequities and budget cuts for federal and state funds, many women are struggling in the squeeze generation, having to take care of elderly parents and their children. Many women have been struggling to find their place in the workforce or trying to field their way out of dead-end relationships. Women of all ages struggle with their image due to under or misrepresentation in the media, pregnancy discrimination, or other biological changes.  “The premise for the conference is that there’s a clarion love call in the land,” says Rev./Dr. Wooten-Troutman. “John 3:16 says ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.’ And I John 4:7 says ‘Beloved, let us love one another.’ Since He loved and gave the ultimate sacrifice for us, then we should love one another. That’s why we’re doing this conference.”
