This thesis is the culmination of hours of thought and study on the apparent supremacy of the male and the subjugation of the female cultures reflected in the Hebrew Bible. After a brief introduction we examine the narratives of Creation and Fall in Gen. 1-3. We are able to conclude that subjugation and supermacy are marks of the Fall -- they are to be protested against, not condoned.
