Christian Women - Equal and Different

For those Christian ladies contemplating wearing a headcovering, and for anyone in this "modern" era, the idea that women and men are equal in spirituality while different in creation and role must be understood to some extent. Read this article, from a Presbyterian point of view, in a discussion of women in Christ's church, with the idea that women are indeed different. While the role of the headcovering itself is not discussed at length, the ideas behind it from 1 Corinthians 11 are - such as that of submission, the authority given to certain men, and the difference between these things and "sexism".
