  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Dinah 
  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).
