No doubt about it, if Devorah were around today, she would be rejected and aspersion would be cast upon her motives.  I guess people were more open-minded about women several thousand years ago than they are in modern times.

It seems we've adopted the Victorian ideal as the Jewish ideal while the history of Jewish women is not so restricted.
