As part of some correspondence, a pastor’s wife, Kathy, wrote the following. I LOVE what she says here!
My prayer is that one day, women will “champion” the men who are brave enough to come out of the “male only” leadership box.
I believe that women who are free are the ones who will be used by God to open the doors for men (and other women) — so that they walk in freedom. The slaves cannot free themselves. I am no longer enslaved by the lies of the enemy about my position in Christ.
I have permission from God– God’s Female Image is free and equal to His Male Image.
Complete freedom and peace came for me to live and minister as God’s Female Image — when the Spirit clearly revealed to me that God had opened the door and I realized satan was keeping me in bondage because I thought that my husband or “the Elders” had to give me permission to be free.
I stand on Galatians 5:1 —
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

I like the principle here. I have long thought that it should mostly be men arguing for women’s rights, for when women do it, some may be seen as not acting as servants as Jesus requires. So likewise, it should be women defending men. That isn’t exactly what you were getting at, but it is related.
