From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    judged; vindicated, daughter of Jacob by Leah, and sister of
    Simeon and Levi (Gen. 30:21). She was seduced by Shechem, the
    son of Hamor, the Hivite chief, when Jacob's camp was in the
    neighbourhood of Shechem. This led to the terrible revenge of
    Simeon and Levi in putting the Shechemites to death (Gen. 34).
    Jacob makes frequent reference to this deed of blood with
    abhorrence and regret (Gen. 34:30; 49:5-7). She is mentioned
    among the rest of Jacob's family that went down into Egypt (Gen.
    46:8, 15).
