    Maybe it is just my conservative upbringing but the so called “women’s issues” some of our more recent female leaders, academics and pundits think is important do not seem all that important to me. Are they suggesting women’s opinions have been irrelevant in history? Are they saying women have not had input or just what? Few women have had more important jobs in Christ’s church than mothers, wives, grandmothers and teachers. To say otherwise is just so much wasted breath.
