ta'anit 4

the men with the iron-clad words and vows
that make the women vulnerable

this page discusses 3 cases of men who made unreasonable demands/bargains with God, whose consequence affected women. 2 of the cases, Eliezer setting up who will qualify to be the bride for Isaac, Saul marrying his daughter to whoever killed Goliath, these worked out well, but the last one - Jephath, vowing to sacrifice whatever greeted him on his return, not so good.
