The Bible has a just a few general rules about women: reward and praise virtuous women, but stay away from strange and evil ones. And don't let any whores enter the house of the Lord or live in your community.
God's attitude toward menstruating women is similar to his attitude toward semen. It just grosses him out. But he seems even more bothered by menstruation. Semen-contaminated people are unclean until evening; menstruating women are "put apart" for a week. Many of the other commandments are similar, however. Whoever and whatever a menstruating woman touches is unclean; whoever touches anything that she sat on is unclean; and a man who has sex with her is unclean for a week. The basic commandment is this: Don't come near a menstruating woman.
God doesn't seem to like childbirth much either, but he especially dislikes those that result in baby girls. Women are unclean for a week after giving birth to a boy, but two weeks for a girl. The purification process is also twice as long for girls as for boys (66 verses 33 days).
There are three rape commandments: The rape of an unbetrothed virgin, in which the rapist must pay the virgin's father fifty shekels marry his victim; country rape, in which only the rapist is killed (the woman is not punished since there was no one to hear her scream); and city rape, in which both the rapist and his victim are stoned to death (the woman is punished since she didn't cry out loudly enough).
In the New Testament, wives are told to obey their husbands as though they were Christ. And if a wife wants to learn something, she should ask her husband at home.
On widows, the Bible says you should honor "widows indeed" (widows who are over 60 years old, had no children, only one husband, pray all the time, have washed the saints' feet, and are not living in pleasure.). But refuse young widows. (They will wax wanton against Christ and remarry; they are idle tattlers and busybodies; many have turned aside after Satan; and are damned because they cast off their first faith.) Old women should be holy, not false accusers, not drink too much wine, and teach good things.
