Why no female messengers/prophets?

Peace Be Upon You All
I know God does as He pleases. But why do you think that no women ever get that title? I guess the closest would be Mary but she was just the messenger of a messenger so to speak ... She has a pretty cool title though ... the best of all women

but still ... anyone have a guess as to why?

It is balanced: women give birth to messengers, men become messengers. Otherwise, men will have no important role to play.

<<women give birth to messengers!>> Is there any role of man in that?

<<Otherwise, men will have no important role to play.>> Can a woman give birth to a child without a man?

Can you see the role of a man now?? ;D

I mean literally being pregnant and giving birth. The man's role  ;) is not HIS role, but THEIR role.

Can a woman give birth to a child without a man?


Mary mother of Jesus rings any bell?  ;)

A woman cannot be a prophet for the obvious reason.

Thanks for correction. So is there any woman other than Mary ;D, who can give birth without a man?

Male domination......even god is referred to as He.....look at what the male messenger had to go through when they warned their people, so you can well imagine what could have happened to a female messenger [in a male dominated/oriented society] if there had been one.
this is just an opinion....I have no other explanation to your question :)

Sorry. The only case is a woman giving birth to a messenger. That's not enough for my first statement?

Peace Be Upon You Bro Agent

Would that be any worse than what any of the other prophets/messengers went thru?
