For Part 2 of The Poly-Gamē | Unpacking the Acceptance of Polygyny among Women In and Out of Biblical Contexts Mayanah HaSoferet delves deeper for a closer look at the argument that a) polygamy is “about sisterhood” and b) that issues of female jealousy are informed by influence from “the West” and is not an issue for women who have remained in their cultural contexts. By citing how languages play a part in reflecting the culture and what language says about how women understand and respond to polygamy in “un-narrated” and “uncoached” spaces, she gives the reader a chance to (re)consider what they believe about jealousy and intrafemale conflict. Throughout the work, biblical ancestors and artifacts are re-visited and discussed to see how the Hebrew Bible factors into the way we understand what polygamy looked like for the chosen people.
