According to The National Opinion Research Center, 77% of Americans believe that "most men are better suited emotionally for politics than are most women" and 85% believe "women should take care of running their homes and leave running the country up to men".

Trends in Attitudes Towards Women and Politics
In other words, the majority of Americans realize that permitting women to enter the American workforce in large numbers, to create a hostile environment for productive men employees, to displace more qualified men employees through affirmative action programs of all kinds and thus demoralize entire corporations, to reduce men to only 40% of college admissions even though two thirds of those who score above 550 in SAT Math are men, to bite the hand that feeds them by suing their own employers for purported (and whimsical) harassment and discrimination by FELLOW employees, has been a colossal failure. As the percent of America's managers and administrators who are women increased from 15% to 44%, the purchasing power of American families plunged by two thirds. Where the American family earned 5 times more than the Japanese family in 1970, the Japanese family now earns twice as much. Where we had a relatively high savings rate in 1970, the average American family now has a negative savings rate while the average Japanese family saves 33 cents of every wage dollar.

Following is an excellent summary of the role of women in a Christian society.
But this statement is in dire need of correction:
It is not correct that women of the world envy American women "for their better roles in life". They envied them because of the standard of living which they had achieved BEFORE affirmative action, BEFORE they became such a large percentage of the work force, BEFORE they occupied 44% of executive and management positions.
Many of these foreign women no longer need to envy American women for this high standard of living because the entry of American women into the labor force parallelled a two thirds plunge in average American family purchasing power, which reduced the standard of living of American women to lower than the women of 17 other nations who previously envied them.
Furthermore, not even American women envy women in these "better roles in life". The vast majority of American women envy women in traditional family roles, and don't consider being "independent" working women to be a "better role" whatsoever. Even polls conducted by feminist rags like Cosmopolitan show that 90% of women in the home don't envy women in the workforce while 75% of women in the workforce DO envy women in the home. This is an important point that must be considered in this otherwise excellent analysis. According to the more reliable National Opinion Research Organization, 77% of Americans believe that "most men are better suited emotionally for politics than are most women" and 85% believe "women should take care of running their homes and leave running the country up to men".
Men score up to 250 points higher than women on the Graduate Record Exam, however, men constitute only 40% of college admissions now, thanks to affirmative action which 85% of Americans oppose.
The problem to the economy of denying men admission to college in such massive numbers is that women college graduates don't earn any more than men who only graduated from high school, whereas men who graduate from college earn 27% more.
In other words, the tremendous percent of our national resources which is spent to provide college educations for women doesn't raise their contribution to the economy any higher than a high school education raises the contribution of men to the economy. This is partly why even by liberal organizations like The Gallup Poll report that 17 out of 20 Americans oppose affirmative action.
This is evidence that most Americans really do understand how this kind of anti-male discrimination and bias is destroying our culture.

From Pastor George Udvary's Identity Bible Reference Manual
The current liberal hysteria that has permeated Christian churches in the past decade or so, agrees that is is right to ordain women as ministers, priests or preachers. The pressure for this change has come primarily from civil rights and women's organizations-E.R.A. enthusiansts and other feminist groups. Their slogans and agitations are bolstered by socialist and leftist ideology groups, which in reality are, social communist sympathizers. Americans tend to be maivelt gullible, especially the American Christian woman.
These groups use the argument that women are abused sex objects, who are sentenced by marreage to boredom, homemaking and child-raising. What they do not tell the American woman today, is that she is the most highly esteemed, freest, richest, most educated, most protected and certainly the most tecnologically-aided woman on the face of the earth. To the uninformed, this may sound like an unfounded accusation, but it is true. In non-Chrstian countries and the expanding communist world, women are still held in the lowest regard. In secret, they idolise the western American women for their better roles in life.
America's women have been challenged to be like men. They have been encouraged to compete in every phase of industry, such as, mining ,construction and the military. It is one situation for a woman to work next to a man at any job she can arrange, but to ensconce herself in the priesthood is having gone too far.
This primary mistake is diametrically opposed to the sanctions set down by Yahweh in the Bible. Uni-sexism is just an attempt to destroy the family, the very structure and moral fuber of this nation. The scriptures must be obeyed. Violation of Yahweh's laws leads to punishment for those who rebel, even when an entire nation is involved.
"For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man:...but all things of Yahweh" (1 Cor. 11:8,9,12). This simply means that a woman is not to be a teacing-praching minister or priest of the church, if that position is ranked over men. The responsible position belongs to an ordained man, but in all other areas of church life, a woman can contribute her abilities without censure.
It is a little known biblical fact that in the Old Testament times, a few select Israelite women have had high-ranking positions. Miriam was the first woman prophetess, and the sister of Aaron and Moses. Deborah was the only woman judge over Israel and even a war leader. Huldah was a prophetess and the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe (for King Josiah).
Micah the prophet, also gave us an important prophecy. In Micah 4, he predicted that in the latter days and in the last battle, the daughters of true Israel will Play a big roll to "thresh" the Antichrist enemy (Mic, 4:13).
In the New Testament (Luke 2:36-38), we read about Anna, the prophetess, from the tribe of Asher, the daughter of Phanuel who was 84, when she recognized the infant Jesus, as the Messiah. These records testify that women are chosen by Yahweh in different times, for various positions, but never to be priests. The key to this problems lies in the words the translators chose to use.
Since we are dealing with controversy in this manner, caution is in order because we seemingly find contradictions in the scriptures. A short search reveals that in Joel 2:28-32, Acts 2:16-21, where Joel's prophecy is twice in the New Testament, it speaks of the Daughters of Israel "shall prophesy."
Observe these important factors here. - Only the sons or daughters of Israel will prophesy (heathen cannot). -The word prophesy use here in both Testament s is either the Hebrew "naba" or the Greek word "propheteou." Either way, they translate to "speaking under inspiration" (which could include predicting) or the word refers to, "sing by inspiration." The same rule applies to 1Cor. 11:5 where dress codes are recommended but implicate that women may "prophesieth" in church. Bit, to translate this to Yahweh's approval to ordain women to the priesthood or to stand in the pulpit teaching men is distorting and mocking the scriptures. -It should be kept in mind that both scriptures from Joel 2 and Acts 2 are prophesies for the last days (Acts 2:17), thus at that time Yahweh may ordain a few of His worthy daughters (but feel assured, it will not be members of N.O.W.). -Last, any of the meanings listed above could have been applied to the word "prophesied," as in Acts 19:6: "to teach, refute, reprove, admonish, or comfort others." (Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon, #4395, page 553). So why did they use the word least applicable?
Gen 3:16 Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule ove thee.
1 Cor 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the chuches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saiththe law. :35 And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
1 Tim 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. :9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly arrayl :10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) withe good works. :11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. :12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. :13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. :14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgressin. :15 Not withstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
May Yahweh bless our good Christian women, the Marys, Marthas and Elizabeths in our churches, we need them desperately. Yahweh knows we would all fail without them.
