Title: Is Gender Inequality a Biblical Mandate?
Description: To what degree do God’s words to woman in the Garden of Eden– “to your husband is your desire and he shall rule over you”– constitute a mandate to all women for all time? Through a comparison of the narrative of Eve with that of Sarah and several later biblical characters, we will note the recurrence of this difficult motif, along with signs of re-examination, and at times reversal, of God’s pronouncements in the Garden.
