Abstract In the context of the so-called "Gender Studies" the exegesis of biblical texts is particularly relevant and biblical commentaries are increasing in the last years. Among them is worth mentioning a series planned in 22 volumes and in 4 languages, entitled "The Bible of Women". Its aim is to point out (by an exegesis that is to be understood not as compensative but rather as supplementary) the specifically feminine role of biblical women and also the outstanding contribution of women to the history of exegesis. We would make some critical remarks to this editorial plan, on the basis of its first published volume, which deals with the first part of the biblical canon, the Torah. We observe, first of all, that the methodological guidelines of this exegetical programme are subordinate to a theological idea of biblical canon (and specifically that one of the Hebrew Bible). Moreover, the conclusions that we read in some of the essays collected in this volume - and reached through this sort of exegesis - could be drawn if we simply but carefully consider the historical and cultural background in which the biblical texts are born. Finally, some philological comments are advanced.
