What Does Paul Mean that “Women Should Remain Silent”?

The officers of the church, the Elders, were to help discern the prophecies being made in Corinth. And in this context, Paul is highlighting women were not Elders, which fits with what he says in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. Once we understand that, that clears up the question of what Paul means in 1 Corinthians 14, especially because we see that women were speaking and prophesying in the church in chapter 11.
