It’s more fundamental than this. There is an equality of personhood but a difference of function. Biblically, the man is head of the woman. But men have abused this gift and in so doing, have denied and frustrated the true role of women in the church and in society.
I won’t bang on about this, because it is erksome to have a full blown duscussion that should be face to face by typing on a tiny cell phone screen. I’ll just say that I fundamentally disagree with the old strict Penticostal subjugation of women. Of course women can prophesy. Of course women can speak. But overall “authority” is male and overall “nurturing” is female.
Probably stirred a hornets nest now, sorry!

Mingling of Spirit with our spirit into God’s is the only real life which is allowed for ever in this universe. However, God has permitted to live in this world with a wife in order to help each other. But not mainly on sex. R. Thomas, Nagercoil, South India.
