This paragraph from the above linked drives home the point pretty well

The ordination of women has once again been a controversial issue in more recent years with societal focus on social justice movements. Still, some Christians[who?] believe that, though men and women are equal, they are not identical and, since New Testament scripture outlays a division between roles of men and women in the church, it would be inappropriate to assign women the role or responsibilities of a pastor in a New Testament church. For example, in reference to Anglicanism, some Anglo-Catholics or Evangelicals, while theologically very different, may share opposition to female ordination.[77] Evangelical Christians who place emphasis on the infallibility of the Bible base their opposition to women's ordination partly upon the writings of the Apostle Paul, such as Ephesians 5:23, 1 Timothy 2:11-15, and 1 Timothy 3:1-7which appears to demand male leadership in the Church.[78] Traditionalist Roman and orthodox Catholics may allude to Jesus Christ's choice of disciples as evidence of his intention for an exclusively male apostolic succession, as laid down by early Christian writers such as Tertullian and reiterated in the 1976 Vatican Declaration on the Question of the Admission of Women to the Ministerial Priesthood.[79]
