Why does the Catholic Church continue to ignore half the population?

It is women who make up over 60% of the membership of the Catholic Church, who statistically speaking are more likely to bring their children up in the faith and whose volunteering hours keep parishes alive. However, did you know that in 2019, women are still not welcome to sit at the table of its male leaders even in regards to decisions that directly affect them? It would seem that their opinions, expertise and perspectives do not matter.

I believe most people of faith, and most Catholics specifically would agree that it makes no sense that decisions affecting us all, cannot be voiced by only half of us. By excluding ​female voices from the decision making of one of the largest institutions in the world, half the Church remains silent.
