Galatians 3:28 – There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

1 Corinthians 11:5 – But every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven.
