St Paul believed that men had always been in charge, Ben Cooper argues

There is no doubt that, as the gospel of Jesus Christ spread in the first century, it had a particularly radical impact on women. Luke's Gospel, in particular, emphasises the favour shown to women by God through Jesus. Women were the first witnesses of the resurrection. Women such as Lydia (Acts 16.14), Priscilla (Acts 18.2 etc.), Phoebe (Romans 16.1), and Junia (Romans 16.7) played significant parts in the early spread of the gospel.
