Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.....

Do the names Noa or Milcah ring a bell?  No!  What about  Malah, Tirzah and Hoglah?
Ok I will let you know who they were -

They were five sisters who, you could say, were the first women to own land.  They were the Daughters of Zelophehad - yes I know not a name that rolls off the tongue!  They were agents of change, wanting to put their necks on the line to level the gender playing field.   What I admire about these sisters is that they were wise, gracious and respected the culture of the day, neverthless knew that they should fight for what was rightfully theirs.

For more about the Daughters of Zelophehad read my book P31 Women, Ancient Secrets for today's women leaders
