What is a “complementarian” and why are women concerned about Marco Rubio’s new advisor?

Last week Marco Rubio announced the formation of a new religious liberty advisory board in his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination.  Among the fifteen members, Wayne Grudem stands out as the leader of “complementarianism,” a movement he created.

Slate:

“Within American evangelicalism, there are two broad camps when it comes to gender issues. Egalitarians—some of whom identify as feminists—believe that gender should not be a barrier to any kind of leadership. Complementarians believe that while men and women have equal value in the eyes of God, men are specially designed for leadership roles. “
