Meyers studied at Wellesley College and Brandeis University, and has taught at Duke since 1977. She writes and teaches in the areas of biblical studies, archaeology, and the study of women in the biblical world. She has been described as "one of today's leading historians and field archeologists". Her 1988 book, Discovering Eve: Ancient Israelite Women in Context, was the "first comprehensive effort to present a female-centred view of the Bible using historical rather than literary criticism". Meyers has also written commentaries on Exodus, Haggai, and Zechariah.
