John (BLT) and I once attended a presentation on Paul's Views on Women given by none other than our own (AWOL) Tom Valetta. Tom has now been released as Mission President and should be back available for comment. John?? It was a great presentation. IIRC, he maintained that it was Greek influence that has degraded their societal position even into our own times. But it would be much better to hear it from Tom.

I will admit, readilly, that the social customs of that time are different
from those of our time.  And it may be that a superficial look at the
practices may make them look unacceptable to us today.  But when we take
time to truly understand their situation we would find the kind of
relationship that would warrent the comparison with our desired relationship
with Christ.
