“I believe that the Genesis 2 creation account was designed to show the equality, compatibility and unity of the first man and woman. They both had the same source, ha’adam, and shared the same flesh made from the same ground that had been personally enlivened by God’s own breath (Gen. 2:7). Genesis 2 gives further detail regarding the equality of men and women previously stated in Genesis 1:26-28.
Genesis 1 and 2 shows that both men and women were given authority over the animals, but no man or woman is given authority over another man or women. There is no hint of any gender hierarchy among humankind before sin entered the world. There is also little evidence of a so-called “creation order” in either of the creation accounts in Genesis.” http://ow.ly/rwqrT
