How many women in the Bible can you name? How many sermons have you heard that emphasised the role of a biblical woman? And are there any women in the Bible that you would recommend as a role model of faith to, say, a teenage girl, a young widow, a woman at menopause, or a woman who has suffered a miscarriage? If your answers to these questions are ‘not many’ or ‘I’m not sure’, then you are not alone! Women make up the minority of biblical characters, and take up far less of its pages than men.
