Qur’anic s source of reference to Women

-        Jesus /'Isa referred to 9 times in the Qur'an as 'Isa and 16 times as "'Isa ibn   Maryam" (Jesus son of Mary); so here the Messiah himself is referred to in relation to his mother more than he referred to by his self.

-        Khawla bint Tha'labah complained to the Prophet about her husband divorcing through a silly pagan custom (you are like the back of my mother); Allah responded to her ; “Allah has indeed heard the statement of the woman wh o pleads with thee concerning her husband and carries her complaint (in prayer) to Allah. and Allah (always) hears the arguments between both sides among you: for Allah hears and sees (all things).” [Q 58:1]

Ibn Kathir mentions in his tafsir that a man (Jarud bin ‘Abdi) said to 'Umar, when he saw him welcoming her warmly and listening to her, "You left a man of Quraish to come to this old woman?" 'Umar said, "Woe to you! Do you not know who this is?" The man said, "No." 'Umar said, "This is a woman whose complaint Allah listened to from above the seven heavens: this is Khawla bint Tha'labah.
