Torrey's Topical Textbook
Woman: 1. Was "taken out of man" (Genesis 2:23) and therefore the man has the preeminence.

2. "The head of the woman is the man;" but yet honour is to be shown to the wife, "as unto the weaker vessel" (1 Corinthians 11:3,8,9; 1 Peter 3:7)

3. Several women are mentioned in Scripture as having been endowed with prophetic gifts, as a. Miriam (Exodus 15:20) b. Deborah (Judges 4:4,5) c. Huldah (2 Kings 22:14) d. Noadiah (Nehemiah 6:14) e. Anna (Luke 2:36,37) f. the daughters of Philip the evangelist (Acts 21:8,9)

4. Women are forbidden to teach publicly (1 Corinthians 14:34,35; 1 Timothy 2:11,12)

5. Among the Hebrews it devolved upon women: a. to prepare the meals for the household (Genesis 18:6; 2 Samuel 13:8) b. to attend to the work of spinning (Exodus 35:26; Proverbs 31:19) c. making clothes (1 Samuel 2:19; Proverbs 31:21) d. to bring water from the well (Genesis 24:15; 1 Samuel 9:11) e. to care for the flocks (Genesis 29:6; Exodus 2:16)

6. The word "woman," as used in (Matthew 15:28; John 2:4; 20:13,15) implies tenderness and courtesy and not disrespect. Only where revelation is known has woman her due place of honour assigned to her.
