The midrash gives the women a leading part in the fertility of the nation in times of slavery. Mend did not wish to continue producing children in slavery, yet the women decorated themselves and seduced the men. The importance of the women's actions is expressed in the fact when in the desert, the sink for the Tabernacle was made from the mirrors before which the women of Israel preened themselves for the men.
