Any talk of gender roles and equality must be grounded on creation.

Main point summary
Authority does not negate complementary roles between a man and a woman because both displays the glory of God in creation, only expressed in different ways.
1 Corinthians 11:7-12
For a man ought not to cover his head,
since j he is the image and glory of God,
but k woman is the glory of man.
For l man was not made from woman,
but woman from man.
Neither was man created for woman,
but m woman for man.
That is why a wife ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 1
Nevertheless, n in the Lord woman is not independent of man
nor man of woman;
for as woman was made from man,
so man is now born of woman.
And o all things are from God.
