Ecdisis

"Ecdysis is the moulting of the cuticle in many invertebrates like snakes."

Reinterpretation of the The fall of men. Genesis 2:17

"God creates Adam and Eve, the first man and woman. God places them in the Garden of Eden and forbids them to eat fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The serpent tempts Eve to eat fruit from the forbidden tree, which she shares with Adam and they immediately become ashamed of their nakedness. Subsequently, God banishes Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, condemns Adam to working in order to get what he needs to live and condemns Eve to giving birth in pain, and places cherubim to guard the entrance, so that Adam and Eve will not eat from the "tree of life"."

 

The only way to stay in Paradise was unconscious.

Eva.

Sinner, temptress, they say. From the first woman, all women to come inherit this judgment. 

I see it different. Eva was the woman and the snake, slave and free. The snake was nothing else that Eva's desire and will of consciousness. She stood alone against God to gift knowledge to humanity. To men. If she were a men, maybe the story would have be different. If she were a men, maybe she would have become a God of Knowledge, the Bravest, the Revolutionair, an Icon of freedom.

Eva's emancipation was not a concession, she took it by right. 

Today , as the First Day of the days, the women in contemporary society share this duality with Eva. We push, we adapt, like snakes we change our skins in order to survive in a society that is largely unbalanced in terms of rights and equal opportunities. Always been judge for fighting for what is our right to take.
