On women and their roles in Judaism

If women can serve as principals and provide religious guidance and instruction to high school students, why can't they do the same for adult women in an official capacity?

If women can decide for themselves when it's necessary to bring a question to a posek, why can't they make that decision for other women?

If we trust mothers to answer the questions about halacha their kids ask, why can't we trust them to answer questions on halacha asked by adults?

If the typical shul rabbis answers questions based on his education and brings difficult or novel questions to a posek, why cant we allow a woman to do the same?
