Woman's History Month: A Call for Nominations

Last month was Black History Month and in honor of it I posted a tribute to African-American Biblical scholars. I listed as many of these scholars as I was aware of and provided links when I could.

This month I would like to do the same for female biblical scholars. Since I am unaware of a published list of female scholars, I am in need of some help. I am aware of many of these women, but want to list as many as possible.

With that in mind, please send me your nominations for female biblical scholars that should be listed and honored in March. I will compile the list and post it at the end of the month.

Thanks in advance for your help.
