Thanks to Richard Anderson on Synoptic-L for drawing attention to two articles by Kenneth Bailey, linked by the theme of women in the NT, in a journal called Theology Matters (Vol. 6, no. 1, January / February 2000). The two articles are in a single PDF file, so I can't give you URLs for each separate one. So if you want the second, click on the link and scroll down.
