Lutheran School Meeting Denies Women to Speak

I think this is the Wisconsin synod right? They’re known for being pretty 1800s I think:

During a six-hour meeting Sunday in which females were not permitted to vote or speak, male church members voted to terminate the principal of a Baraboo Christian school…. Females do not have voting privileges, but are generally allowed to speak at meetings. Sunday’s meeting was the first time in recent history that St. John’s Council President Don Finseth exercised his authority to prevent females from speaking, church members say. … Women who wanted to ask questions were told to write them on a piece of paper and have a man read them aloud. But some, including Hartwig’s own daughter, said their questions were never read.

via St. John’s votes to fire principal: Women not allowed to vote, speak.
