You won't read this in your Sunday paper

A major conference is being held in Chicago this weekend called True Woman. As a conference, women from around the country, astute Bible teachers, and cultural experts are standing up for the dignity of femininity. They are not asking women to become men to be praised and accepted in society; they are recognizing woman have amazing gifts and unique callings that deserve great respect.

They recently released a manifesto on their view of being a true woman:

I thought this was a very powerful line in their manifesto: We believe that the creation of humanity as male and female was a purposeful and magnificent part of God’s wise plan, and that men and women were designed to reflect the image of God in complementary and distinct ways.

I read through the woman's manifesto and I noticed an absence of OT references to womanhood and female icons who exhibited courage, foresight, leadership, savvy, and strength (eg, Deborah,Lydia, etc.). I'm just wondering wazup with that?
