A character from the Hebrew Bible/ Old Testament. Dinah is Jacob's only daughter by Leah. Traditionally Dinah is viewed as being was raped by Shechem. Other interpretations see her as sleeping with him outside of marriage, and blame the outrage of her brothers on prejudice rather than a true need for vengeance. Jacob agrees to his daughter's marriage to Shechem if all the men he controls are circumcised, which Shechem agrees to do. Jacob's sons Simeon and Levi are not satisfied with this and "avenge" their sister by killing every man in the city where Shechem lived.

The Red Tent by Anita Diamant is a retelling of Dinah's story from her point of view.
