II. A. BIBLICAL STUDY OF ROLE OF WOMEN IN ISRAEL (OT) by point the way to improvement in the status of women in later times. • • • SUMMARY OF THE PAPER Harkness's book Women in Church and Society. Single women ministers, married women ministers, and women who have gone into the ministry after being. The Book of Judges exemplifies this marginalization as it witnesses to it; women play a prominent role in its structure because the subject of the book is marginalization.7 In the view of the tradents who composed the first two sections of the Hebrew Bible, there is a significant continuity before and after the period of the Judges.
It turns out that if you divide the book according to the roles of the women in the book, these divisions coincide fairly well with the introductory phrases. A warrior wins a wife and a father blesses his daughter A courageous woman lures a foreign warrior to his death A woman delivers Israel from a power hungry oppressor. "Women in Israel is the first comprehensive overview of discrimination in a state dominated by a patriarchal religious order, and brings fresh insights to the efficacy of the law in improving the status of women.

The Status of Women in Israel I. INTRODUCTION Perhaps the best indicator of the status of women in Israel is the fact that the subject "women's rights" rarely attracts public atten-tion, for most rights are enjoyed equally by men and women.
Special provisions relating to women, for the most part, are regarded as bene-fits rather than disadvantages. Volume VI presents a composite portrait of women's lives in Israel, analyzing their status hi the family, at work, in the military, and in political life.
