Bible scholar NT Wright answers a listener question on whether the Bible allows women to teach in churches, including the passage from 1 Timothy 2 v 11-12 “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 

I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.” Tom explains why he believes these verses have been taken out of context to forbid female church ministry.
