Sarah

The first woman in the Bible after Eve to receive more than a passing notice is Sarah. Evidently she was a woman of vigorous personality. She was no weak plaything, without mind or will of her own. On the contrary, we should gather she was a masterful woman.
But she stands as the example of " the holy women... who trusted in God, being in subjection unto their own husbands," for we read, " Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well " (1 Peter 3:5,65For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: 6Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. (1 Peter 3:5‑6)).
This clearly gives us the position of woman in relation to man, and the practice followed by godly women of old.
