I am proud of you for having the courage to walk out of that hornet's nest. I never felt that the BOE was directed by holy spirit. However, I am particularly struck by the horror story you tell about allegations of "non-payment of contract workers". You mention that "many of these workers were sisters from nearby congregations". This makes me sick because I am sure that many of these sisters listened to the dictates of the religion, to their detriment, and perhaps did not get higher education and careers. When I hear stories like this I am thankful I never fell into the trap of working for anybody in the JW religion.
I am sorry for what you tolerated with trying to be a pioneer with these JW females. Anybody there who felt there was a pecking order and that they were the "head" of it would certainly have an issue with me because I would never humor them. On a related point, this also applies on a secular job if you are unfortunate enough to work with JW females. I would have to set them straight and tell them to can their great lady or prima donna act.
And, yes, it is true that the brothers couldn't care less about what JW women do to each other in service. In fact, I think some of these brothers feel at some level that certain privileged women are there to keep other women down. In the business world, you could be a victim of discrimination by another woman. Why does the management allow this??? Because, they do not want too many women in a high position - SO they will "allow" maybe one female to be elevated and then SHE keeps the rest down. See? This is also an unspoken rule in the religion.
This is a very abusive religion and I saw through the whole thing.
