What do you think ?

I once posted a quote from Jarena Lee (1783 - ?) on Facebook.

I googled her name and found out what an incredible woman she was! She was even part of the Second Great Awakening. I'd never heard of her before, an African-Ameriacan woman living in pre-civil war times. She ventured boldly into unchartered territory when she answered the call to preach. She faced a lot of opposition, and yet she stepped forth in courage and perseverance, working as an unordained itinerant preacher for more than 30 years. It was Michele DeRusha's Insta post which inspired me.

Here are the Facebook comments from her quote above: 
"Why should it be thought impossible, heterodox, or improper for a woman to preach, seeing as the Saviour died for the woman as well as for the man?"
