    why women can only fill the spymaster slot ?

    What's the point of showing all the ingame women's statstics if they can only use intrigue ?

    because the traits they have, are more likely to pass to their children and guardians when they are tutoring.

    Because wife shares half of her stats with her husband?

    Because women can hold their own titles, too. If your daughter is going to inherit, you probably want to be able to see her stats while trying to arrange a matrilineal marriage.

    Half of their stats are added to their husbands' for ruling.

    Probably because offices of the state are too male, the Spymaster being one that doesn't even officially exist, so a bit more relaxed. This is just my guess. While there are recorded examples of women riding out in full plate armour and fighting, which I doubt many modern men would be able to pull off, I can't recall a single officially appointed female chancellor or steward from the middle ages Europe. (Rulers or regents being a different thing, and present in the game.)

    If you want to let women hold other council positions, go the common subdirectory, and open job_titles.txt. Just place a colon before any of the council position lines that begin "is_female = no," and save. Be sure you backup the file, first, just in case you mess up. I've got chancellors and stewards, as well, that are female.
