I have been out so long, I have no idea what is going on now. For myself it was a factor. At first I humbly accepted that I should be subservient to men. As I got older and started working my way up in my career, it became more difficult. In my work, I was paid the same as any man and had as much responsibility, so then there was a disconnect that I had to be something different at the Kingdom Hall. I was at a meeting for service where the only brother was a young MS, he was struggling to put car groups together. It was obvious that most of the women there could have done a better job. It just seemed a bit silly to waste the talents of 50% of the congregation by giving them such a limited role, all based on one scripture (I do not permit a woman to teach in the congregations" I have attended a few churches since I left where women were the pastors, it seemed to make for a better church experience.
From what I have read, Bethel seems to be a male dominated environment, with women only allowed grudgingly, if at all. They seem to actually fear and detest women, I have a hard time imagining them changing or seeing the need for women to be given more responsibility.
