LDS Author Creates Comprehensive List of All Women in the Book of Mormon and Bible

This list adds to those she has already created for women in the New Testament and women in the Book of Mormon. Here is just a sampling of the names she discovered. Find them all on her blog womeninthescriptures.com.
