Yes. yiddishkeit respects intellect, our Imahos, Nevios, Choshuve Tzidkanios were brilliant. This generation we have fewer Tzikanios but you can find them. The gemorah is timeless and I don’t agree with your thoughts on the matter.
May you have clarity and Binah to find sources that will give you keen insight into the royal and honored position a Jewish women is.
