Women do use priesthood power in their callings. Ordinances of salvation are performed by women in the temple. A priesthood holder cannot use the priesthood for his own benefit; only for the benefit of others. It does not make him any better than anyone else.
When I think of the power of the Priesthood and women, I like to think of the definition of Priesthood. Some people will say that it is, "The power of God on earth." I have read many times that it is 'The power of God on earth for the salvation of mankind." When you read this definition, it is much easier to see how women are involved and use the priesthood power. Not to perform the formal ordinances of salvation, but to use their influence in their homes and at church as loving teachers of the principles of salvation. Men perform the living ordinance of baptism, women perform the living ordinance of birth.
