It’s interesting to me that they clearly distinguished gender roles in the chapter “Imagining the Self’ but in a positive way. I feel like that’s not very common to see women in a positive way. When you think about a lot of biblical examples women are typically displayed in negative light. With the Jewish manuscripts however, they show women having just as much fun as men in the art. They are shown equal to men and enjoying themselves. I found that very surprising.
