Dear Rabbi & Susan,
I enjoy your podcast discussions about relationships between men and women. I wonder if you have any thoughts you may like to share regarding women who discriminate against other women? Sadly, I don’t feel women are very supportive of other women and wonder why this is?
Thanks and God bless you.
Your question has vast implications. These include political, social, business, and family as well as others. Though we are working on a book about the interface of money and male-female relationships, we’ll try and respond to your question a lot more briefly.
The Bible describes several examples of difficult relationships between women including: Sarah and Hagar (Genesis 16), Rachel and Leah (Genesis 29) and Penina and Hannah (I Samuel: 1).
