Due to the virtues of Esther the attempted Judeocide in Persia is averted in Purim. Not only does she fast, but puts herself at risk on behalf of her people out of ahavas Yisrael and ahavas Hashem. Mordecai refuses to bow to Haman (yimach shemo) and thus according to Hazal effects a tikkun, as Yakov was forced to bow to Esauv. The "coincidences" such as "What if Ahasverus were not sleepless that night?", 'What if Mordechai had not overhead the plot of Judeocide?", "What if Esther, the most beautiful women in all of the Persian Kingdom, had not found favor in Ahasverus eyes?" may appear as "coincidences" which upon closer examination reveal the Yad Hashem, of the King of kings. Hazal teach that biyamei HaMashiach Purim above all Hagim will be celebrated as the pesukim chanted in Megillas Eshter in a dirgeful minor key of lamentful eichah trope, because the Persian court uses the holy (kodesh) vessels (kelim) of the Beit HaMikdash in degrading secular ways (hol), will once again be restored in purity and holiness as kelim fitting for the supernatural sanctity (kedushah) of the rebuilt (by Hashem via the mashiach who in Ani Zemirot is said to wear garments soaked red with the wine of Edom that has been converted into kosher wine, i.e. making the secular holy- so Shabbos reigning 24/7) the Beit HaMikdash, on Har Habayit where His holy presence of the Shekinah will dwell .

This brief sketch looks at the significance of RH for women. by citing sources in the Tanakh, Talmudim, Rabbinic corpus, Lurianic Kabbalah, and hilchot Birkat ha-hodesh. Amongst a number of sources, Prike de Rabbi Eliezer notes that it is because of the women's zekut (merit) in not contributing to the construction of the egel ha-zahav, Hashem rewarded the women with refraining from certain types of work on RH.

The evil Jezebel who brought idolatry to Israel when married to King Ahav, desired the innocent Naboth's vineyard and ancestral estate (shtei Ahuza). Naboth did not want to sell this ancestral estate so Jezebel wickedly marshaled 900 false witnesses against Naboth in this conflict of interests, and had the innocent Naboth legally tried and convicted of capital punishment based on the rigged false testimonies. Jezebel also sought to kill Elijah the prophet and his prophetic disciples, but Eliyahu prevailed and Eliyahu's fate was to be ascended to heaven in a fiery chariot [translated alive to the heavenly realms] and creating a legacy of secret esoteric teachings regarding ma'aseh merkavah.(the doings of the divine chariot), a divine chariot which also is witnessed by the prophet Yehezkel as a reflection on the Chabar river in Bavel and the prophet Isaiah in the throne vision in the Temple in Jerusalem. The wicked Jezebel's fate however is the opposite, as predicted "the dogs would lick her blood" after fenestration, midah kineged midah.
