Thank you for this.

I wanted to ask, based on this interpretation, do you see Joseph's eventual prominence and leadership as an elevation of feminity or at the expense of it?

What I mean is:

(A) - A feminine character is in a position of authority. Because of their feminity, feminism is viewed positively.


(B) - A feminine character is a 'masculine' position. Because of their position (and despite said ' feminism'), the character is viewed positively?

I've seen this brought up in other contexts like Deborah in Judges 4 & 5, but have never considered it in this narrative until you shared this! I would be interested to see how you view that (if my question even makes sense). Thanks so much!
