The issue that has arisen with “inclusive language” and the NRSV is that some do not believe it is true to the original languages (ie. Hebrew/Aramaic and Greek) and their meanings. The footnotes in the NRSV show what the original translation of the word was, but one must always remember in what context the Gospels, Epistles, etc., were written; women were not important members of society, even though Paul (contrary to popular belief) regarded women as important members of the Church.
