I know of nothing in scripture or SoP that states that just being female excludes one from the pulpit. Otherwise, we would have to explain why Ellen White, and other women, were preaching on Sabbath at the very beginning of our denomination's history.

But who else apart from Ellen White is an example.??

My brother your question is easy to answer

Ro 16:1 ¶  I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:
 2 That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.

Here is a church without a Male Pastor, it has a Female Pastor instead...

Follow me on this Greek word first

Ro 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:

1Co 3:5 ¶ Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?  6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

2Co 6:4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

2Co 11:23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

Eph 3:7 Whereof I was made a minister,  according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

Php 1:1 ¶ Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:

How poorly inconsistent KJV is....what do you think? Does this word really change meanings because of its context ? Most languages have words in them that have the same meanings regardless of context, and Hebrew is no not let scholars tell you differently

OK what does bishop mean ?

Ac 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

1Ti 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

So that's all the main verses for bishop...seems to be a male who cares and feeds families with needs

So in the NT the only word that refers to a Pastor is the word "Servant"

And my friend here was a church without a male pastor, so a female pastor was doing the serving

Hope this helps
