The enormous, sustained effort it took to produce and enforce Patriarchy

Suhair Sibai "Rendition"

“The creation of the world by a male creator god, can be found in many variants worldwide, but biblical myth differs from other creation scenarios by its exclusion of a feminine deity. This exclusion is an arresting factor, to say the least. Scholars now recognize the enormous, sustained effort it took to produce and enforce a sacred narrative focused on a male deity without a female counterpart.” – John Lamb Lash, Not in His Image
