Genesis has two successive creation accounts. It is possible to notice the clear transition from one account to another. This transition is right in verse 31 of chapter 1, where it is said: "And God saw everything he had done and thought it was very good ..." In verse 1 of Chapter 2 you can see that there is the beginning of a new account, with different language and style.
In this context, it is relevant to note that in chapter 1, man and woman were created simultaneously and on an equal footing: "God created man in his image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them (verse 27) However, in chapter 2, the man (male) would have been created alone and only afterwards, that this man would not have found "a helper who corresponded to him" (verse 20), that God would have created Eve, the female, from the bowels of Adam, the male.
This is a visible interpolation in the original text to justify patriarchy. The conception of the unitary human being was clearly changed - male and female created simultaneously as a single being and of the same essence - to the conception of the "auxiliary" woman and originated from the man himself.
The Bible brings truths in ancient and wise texts, however, it is necessary to have a lot of criteria to separate "the chaff from the wheat", as, surprisingly, Jesus of Nazareth warned: "man was not made for the Sabbath, but the Sabbath for the man, "he said. One should not accept everything in the letter," because the letter kills and the Spirit quickens ".
For centuries and centuries women were under the male yoke in the name of religion, when that same religion, in its purest essence, said just the opposite, that is, that man and woman were created simultaneously, with the same dignity.
Jesus tried to break this conception by accepting women among his disciples, but it seems that it did not help much, since the ancient tradition spoke louder.
Finally, there is a question: among these, how many mistakes have we not yet made due to obeying an interpolated tradition due to shady purposes? To what extent could ill-founded beliefs lead to unhappiness and destruction?

Adams first wife would not bow down and obey Adam, so god sent her out of the garden of eden, Her name was Lilith and since god didn't want a replay he made woman from the man (the rib story).
