demonization of Vashti in the midrash


I’m a gentile, but I just want to ask some things: I know that the character of Vashti from the book of Esther is demonized within the babylonian Talmud. Many jewish feminists have rejected these demonized writings as sexist and see her as a feminist figure.

I would want to know if I could hear some of your opinions on the Vashti character, but I must also add that I support the feminist interpretation of the character.
