Ancient ERA  From "Daughters of Chutzpah, Humorous Verse on the Jewish Woman" written by Mollee Kruger, illustrated by Kathie Abrams, published by Biblio Press 1983, p. 93.

Exhibit One  Zeliophedad (numbers 271),
Who, praise the Lord, five daughters had,
He died, and here's the point that stabs,
His property came up for grabs
No son.  To make the story short,
His daughters took the case to court,
Demanding justice under law,
And what a furor Moses saw
When five young women aimed their sights
And marched demanding equal rights.
Then Moses went before the Lord,
Who told him girls can't be ignored,
They won, despite some dirty looks,
The oldest lawsuit on the books!
