Women’s Rights : What is the REAL history of the Judeo-Christian tradition?

Doe the Judeo-Christian religion fall behind on teaching women’s rights or lead?

What about Caleb’s daughters? They owned land in Israel whereas women in surrounding nations could not.

What about the virtuous wife in Ecclesiastes? She traded – had a business.

What about Deborah, Judge of Israel, leader in battle, who celebrated that all volunteered and did their duty?

What about Mary, Martha’s sister, who was allowed to study Torah in the living with the men, while her sister was cooking?

What about Priscilla, Junias, and Phoebe, who held positions of leadership in the early church?

Maybe the Jews and early Christians really led in women’s rights.
