Any Scripture that supports woman not being priests?

Is their any scripture that supports our church’s position on women not being in the preisthood?

Dear Jeff,

There is no Scripture that supports women being ordained to the priesthood. The fact that Jesus did not call women to be His apostles–not even His mother–is a strong indication that such a calling was not His intention.
