We live in the day of women’s liberation, women’s rights, and the feminist movement. Women are clamoring for equality with men and are seeking fulfillment not in the home and not in raising a family, but in the profession, and careers traditionally occupied by men. The women’s movement has become highly organized, a political force to be reckoned with. All across the globe, organizations traditionally open only to men, from high school soccer teams to the Jaycees, are being pressured to admit women. Equal representation in politics and positions of policy-making is the cry of the day. It is not surprising, therefore, that there is also a parallel movement in the churches pushing for the admittance of women into the special offices of minister, elder, and deacon.
