I got into a little bit of a heated debate with my MIL over this. Her position is that the Priesthood is meant to be a direct line to the Apostles, and the Apostles are direct stand ins for Jesus. Since Jesus was a man, then a woman can not stand in for him. And since none of the Apostles were women she doesn't believe that this was Christ's plan.
To me this doesn't make any sense. There are plenty of female followers of Christ in the Gospel. None of them were at The Last Supper, but that was a Passover feast of traditional Jewish orthodox following. I feel like that had more to do with Jewish traditions than Christ's vision. The women were more present at the Crucifixion than the men were. Does that count for nothing? And what about Lazarus's sister who shares table with the men and discusses religion with them?
I don't get it. I think women should at LEAST be able to preach, even if they can't become Priests.

They are not allowed to preach the word in a Church, Assembly or Synagogue. But they are allowed to prophesy, and according to Yah, there will be many who do prophecy in the last days, men, women, and so on. Blessings..
