Christians like to use the example of Deborah, the prophetess, in Judges, but even she wasn't deemed as fully equal. Because Barak asked her to go with him into battle, God judged him and said that the victory would go to a woman. It was a punishment to Barak for treating Deborah as something resembling an equal.
And yes, that story of Dinah is horrific, and the girl is forced to marry her rapist. It's such a sad story preceding the story of Joseph.

Joseph makes no sense. Musical was better.
