Can I Get A Witness?!

In our church women are not allowed to serve as witnesses.  At every official ordinance there is a form signed that men holding the priesthood witnessed it, making the record valid.  Here's my question:

Two thousand years ago women could not be witnesses in court, their words held no bearing of truth that something actually happened.  In such a sexist culture, Mary who held no priesthood was chosen by our Savior to be The (First) Witness to the most miraculous event ever recorded in human history.  Why can't a woman serve as a witness?  Even if men are the ones to complete our saving ordinances . . . why not a witness?
