Huldah the prophetess

The Bible tells us that when Josiah was king of Judah and needed advice about the authenticity of a scroll found in the temple, he accepted the judgment of a woman called Huldah. See II Kings 22:3-23:5;

Evidently Huldah was known in Judah for her spiritual insight. She was a prophetess. Although the Bible doesn't tell us details of her preparation for this role, spiritual dedication and desire to know God characterized an individual who spoke God's message. It was unusual for a woman to attain the role of prophetess, since Hebrew society confined a woman's influence primarily to home and family. Huldah was married to Shallum, and in this role it would be normal for her to have household responsibilities.
