Muzzeling the Ox: Women Today

There is statement in the Bible reminding people of the unwise move of muzzeling the ox that is working to grind the corn or the grain to be made into bread. Life and economic vitality depended on the strength of the ox to work at the thankless task.
I was struck lately with how apt an illustration that is for woman in the church sometimes. She is hidden away, working thankless and repeatitive duties, and some want to muzzle her as well.
What happens when an ox gets hungry? When it is not cared for or tended to with respect? It looses strength, withers and dies, OR it can grow frustrated, anxious and break out to escape the servitude of its bondage.
