There is a fascinating text in Corinthians where women are commanded not to ask questions in church but to do so at home. What is implied is that the men were asking questions and the women were becoming bold enough to join in. It is not asking questions that is rebuked but rather the gender posing them in public. Sadly when discussing this text I was told it was "probably not canonical". This derailed the discussion I wanted on men leading in Q and A sessions in the "primitive church".
