There’s a new book by Rev. Lindsay Hardin Freeman, an Episcopal priest, written to answer the question, “How many words are spoken by women in the Bible?”
This book has initiated a lot of social media attention.
“There are 93 women who speak in the Bible, 49 of whom are named. These women speak a total of 14,056 words collectively — roughly 1.1 percent of the total words in the holy book.”
