Who Can Preach the Gospel: Is the Great Commission Gender-Restricted?

 I was told I make a big deal of nomenclature in the chapter dealing with the Redeemer, in my book, Redemption: Bible Prophecy Simplified - A Study of HOPE.

I do. 

I make a big deal of who named who [and what God called the first humans], because prominent and incredibly influential Christian leaders made a big deal of it... first. They made such a big deal of it, that it became one of their premier arguments in mandating restrictive gender roles for women...roles the Bible does not mandate. 

Their gender-role mandates restrict women's ministry options, and adversely effects relationships across the board, from working relationships, to friendships between women and men, to marriage relationships. I have written a 200+ page book and many articles on this subject. You can read one of my articles here.

The Great Commission is not gender-restricted, yet over half the Body of Christ is muzzled and forbidden to preach the Gospel, in part, because of the  "name" issue in Genesis. That makes this topic worth making a "big deal" over...don't you think?

What do you think? Are women included in the Great Commission to go and preach the Gospel to every creature...?
