Here is a link to a draft of my next piece for Feminism and Religion (FAR): Poppaea & Paul: Was This About A Female Challenge To Male Privilege?  This will be posted in final form on FAR on March 5th.  It relates in part to Sappho's influence on Song of Songs.  In connection with that I have created a separate file identifying language in the Greek version of Songs 5:2-6 that would have been perceived as echoes of Sappho by an educated woman in antiquity (ie Poppaea)--an issue that has importance independent of whether or not such echoes should be deemed evidence of Sappho's influence on the author/translator of Songs.
