The Creation (of misogyny)

When Adam and Raphael openly talk about Eve, it shows how Milton feels about women. How Milton believes women don’t have the mental capacity to listen to Raphael’s creation story and rather hear Adam’s, which she knows will be told more carelessly. When we are looking at a story inspired by the creation of the world, it becomes easier to see how the separation of women and men and the superiority status between the two are man-made and not intended by God himself (assuming that he created man-kind purposefully).
