Social position based on spiritual advancement

It has often been argued by many an ISKCON member that women should be offered positions based on their spiritual advancement. For example, if a woman is spiritually advanced, then she should be allowed to become a GBC member. But this idea is pernicious in that ISKCON members who make this argument want to cash in their spiritual advancement for material gain. That is, in their minds they still equate social position with spiritual advancement, and hence they bring unwanted materialism to devotional service.
