This book was written in 1889. It is illustrative of the past history, present duties and future destiny of the Hebrew females as based on the word of God. Aguilar, English novelist is a writer on Jewish history and religion, whose productions are chiefly stories and religious works dealing with Jewish subjects. In the "Women of Israel" she profiles women in the Torah. The following is an excerpt of her description of Deborah: Had there been the very least foundation for the supposition of the degrading and heathenizing of the Hebrew female, we should not find the offices of prophet, judge, military instructor, poet, and sacred singer, all combined and all perfected in the person of a woman: a fact clearly and almost startlingly illustrative of what must have been their high and intellectual training.
