Quotable: Eduardo Galeano on Adam and Eve

In honor of International Women’s Day, the late great Uruguayan literary wizard has a few pertinent words for us all:


“If Eve had written Genesis, how would the human race’s first night of love have been? Eve would have begun by explaining that she was not born of any rib, nor that she had known any serpent, nor that she had offered apples to anyone, and that God never told her that you would give birth with suffering and your husband would dominate you. That all these tales are pure lies which Adam told to the press.”
