To answer your question, Ricky, there were definitely liberal-minded working women at my church. However, as I mentioned earlier, those were typically the ones who did not want to get married or else they would have felt compelled to obey their husbands/be subservient. Since I was already married, I subscribed to the church's idea (which they repeated over and over again during church services) that a woman must serve her husband like she serves the Lord. A woman was supposed to have these as her top priorities, according to my church: God, her husband, and her child(ren). Women who had kids were considered more blessed somehow by God, and work or school was considered something more worldly. So I don't think I could have thought more liberally without my deconversion, since I had heard that sort of stuff since I was a little kid.
I think that what I experienced says a lot about my church's brand of Christianity. Different churches have different interpretations of scripture, and what I mentioned earlier is what they taught me. Some churches ignore scripture, and end up using their own SPAG (rather than the SPAG of Biblical authors) to guide them. I feel that any type of SPAG is potentially dangerous because it is simply a person's way of justifying doing whatever they please. For example, in the OT, a father is to be payed in silver shekels if his virgin daughter is raped, and she must marry her rapist. That sounds to me as if the Biblical authors wanted women to be treated as property, so they hid behind the "authority" of their God to justify that.
