The finished works of Jesus have made Believers all one in Christ, and that unity includes breaking down the barriers between men and women. Renewing our mind in the Word of God makes us more aware of this, and lets us experience the freedom that did not exist under the old covenant. God created Adam and Eve as equals, united as one with each other and God. After sin entered the garden of Eden and they both fell prey to it, inequalities arose. But what Jesus did restored the balance that God originally created.
