There's so much in the chapter - we are introduced to the two famous trees, the rivers, the naming of the animals and, at last, the creation of "woman." But why exactly was "woman" (she isn't yet named 'Eve') created? Are there common misunderstandings about this today? What does it mean for discussions around "gender" today, if anything? And what does all this mean for a robust vision of humanity, work, and gender partnership in the world? Join me for an exploration of all these questions, in only 10 minutes.
