Jezebel is one of the most notorious female characters in history. And it isn’t a fluke that in the Hebrew Bible’s telling of her story, she speaks like a man.

“Jezebel’s very direct. She gives orders,” says Hare. “She gives orders to men which is unusual. She asks direct questions. She’s very future-oriented, not past oriented, and she never ever uses any forms of deference.”

Jezebel was eventually thrown from a window. Her body was eaten by stray dogs.

THis may not be the best pattern to follow.
