About Chana חנה ("Hanale, Lady of Vives") בת מאיר הישיש (bat Meir Kalonymos), [נכדת רש"י]

Yocheved's daughter, Chanah, was a teacher of laws and customs relevant to women.

Controversy exists whether women taking up the obligation to light Shabbat candles along with a bracha originated with Chanah or not.
