Christian Analysis

     Women were acting within biblical boundaries. They were not in positions of authority over men. They worked hard to support their households; a virtue highly respected in the Bible (Proverbs 31). Their roles changed in the world as the war progressed and they were forever changed. They gained value and respect in the workforce that was reversed after the war, but not totally. It is not against the Bible for women to work jobs that men might otherwise have; think of Lydia the purple cloth dealer! Women were the supporting force behind the men who fought: that is the job that women have.
