I wish to place my contribution at a critical distance from “Trying to Prove that the
Bible Is Pro-Woman. How some feminists perpetuate patriarchy”, an article by
Lena Ksarjian. In this text Ksarjian explores the new generation of scholars through a series of discussions with female theologians who contribute to the ongoing projects of feminist scholarship. She proposes an atheist rather than an agnostic approach to biblical female figures or plots in which women are implicated.
I analyse the biblical text from other perspectives (Lévinas’, Chalier’s and Trigano’s commentaries) and consequently I wish to furnish an alternative notion of humanism which is not inflexibly negative in respect to biblical narration on female characters.

Keywords: “Securing ’diversity’ and ‘tolerance’", Religion, Feminism, Multiculturalism
