Synopsis: 

Shaw-Frank investigates the life of Devorah, perhaps the Bible's most famous female leader, who was also a judge, prophet and war strategist. Shaw-Frank demonstrates that Devorah was more than an archetype of a hardened career woman.  Instead, Devorah was a powerful leader who found strength in the legacy of the holy women who preceded her, as she used her feminine strength and nurturing abilities to earn great achievements in a traditionally male role.
