The first woman. According to Genesis 1:27, both male and female were created in the image of God. In Genesis 2:22, Eve was formed from the rib of Adam. In the Garden of Eden she was seduced by the serpent to be disobedient to God and persuaded Adam to follow her example. Because of this, they were expelled from the Garden and Eve was condemned to labour in child-birth and to be subservient to her husband.
