Deborah and Barak

“One of the areas which Joshua’s forces had never been able to fully take over was the Valley of Jezreel.  When local Canaanite forces now unite under Jabin and Sisera, it falls to a courageous woman named Deborah to take the initiative in repelling the Canaanites.  Deborah is able to persuade a cautious general named Barak to lead the northern tribes to victory.  Another woman (Jael) also shares in the glory of victory when she bravely kills Sisera.”
