|Phyllis Trible is a professor of biblical studies at the Divinity School at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. She has authored many texts analyzing women's roles in biblical stories. In your reading, she argues against the traditional interpretation of the Genesis creation stories to suggest that perhaps God did not create men and women unequally, showing that although the culture that produced the Bible was patriarchal, the language chosen, itself, does not necessarily indicate that God intended women to have a secondary status in human-divine relations. Instead ,she shows that those interpretations come from the patriarchal cultures who begin using and translating those texts.||
