Wine is seminal in three rabbinic narratives about wars of the
sexes. Threatened by female sexuality, three men and an angry wife face-off
against fiery women -- Homa, Yalta, and erotic Hebrew slave women in Egypt.
These women undermine male hegemony. The results vary -- defeat, stalemate, and
Divine vindication. Win, lose or draw, these women acquit themselves as
champions fighting for women everywhere.
