Not all denominations are like this, like the church I am a member of, but that’s how it is with others. Of course, those are just three examples of such “rules” for women. These may seem minor compared to the “authoritative husband” and “submissive wife” roles, but again, just examples. And, like you stated “it’s a losing battle” to continue such discriminatory roles within the church. Some also don’t allow women to take any leadership roles. So I guess I wouldn’t have been teaching for those 14 years, then! Anyway, another example.
