 Adam's faith in Genesis 3:20.  He called his wife, Eve, the mother of all living, right after God had just pronounced death to him, "Dust thou art and unto dust shall thou return."  By naming her Eve, which means living, Adam was expressing faith in the Seed of the woman that would bruise Satan's head.  Adam and Eve were driven from the garden but both were forgiven and cleansed and clothed with coats of skin.  Though forgiven, they, and the whole human race, suffered the consequences of their sin.  Satan's enmity is also against the natural seed [children] of the woman, which, of course, is all mankind.  He hates the woman because she is the bearer of the seed.  She brings forth the children who will have the opportunity to be born into the family of God and become sons of God with authority over him.  This, stated again, explains the pitiful lot of women in many parts of the world.

Have you ever heard of Sarah, Rebekah, Rachael, Ruth, Esther, [whole books are about Ruth and Esther], Rahab, and Mary to name a few.  Yes, they lived in a patriarchal society.  God called Abraham out of the Ur of the Chaldees, a patriarchal land, into the promised land, but for some reason, God chose to take a long time to take the patriarchal Ur of the Chaldees out of Abraham and his descendants.  But throughout, God established protections for women. "You shall not commit adultery."  "You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife."(Exodus 20:14 & 17)  This was for God’s glory, but also for the protection of woman.  In Exodus 22:22, God commanded Israel, "You shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child."  In Deuteronomy 10:18, Moses declares that the God of Israel "executes judgement of the fatherless and the widows, and loves the stranger."  Let's talk about the other great women!
