The book of Judges (), for instance, mentions a wise [hakam] princess in attendance on Sisera’s mother, who advises her – incorrectly as it turns out – about her son’s whereabouts.

How can we tell what is moral law in the Old Testament? Some have said “The moral law of God is found in the ten commandments and that is it”.

      The problem of the rights of woman in Jewish law and custom is presented mainly in five phases: (1) the power of the father over his daughter; (2) woman's right of inheritance; (3) the powers and duties of the husband; (4) woman's opportunities for self-improvement and for following various occupations; and (5) the position of the mother.

women seem to be the most oft misunderstood. There are not many books in the marketplace today dealing with the issue of women’s rights in the Old Testament. However, of the monographs printed on the topic, James Baker’s Women’s Rights in Old Testament Times is poignant.
