Bad-Ass Women of History

So, Judges 5, aka “The Song of Deborah and Barak,” is our oldest swatch of Hebrew scripture. It’s about a female leader of Israel, who guides her general toward battle. It’s also about a female badass named Jael, who does in the enemy leader with a tent spike. Oldest known Hebrew scripture. Two uppity ladies. No submissiveness for miles. (And don’t even me started on this guy named Barak.)
