Lilith the first woman on earth, created together with Adam on the Sixth Day and from the same materials. Lilith was created independently from and equal to Adam, and this led to promblems. Adam tried to make Lilith lie beneath him during sexual intercourse. Lilith would not meet this demand of male dominance. She flew away and meanwhile Adam had been provided with a new mate in the form of Eve, who was fashioned from his rib in the hope that this would bind her more dutifully to him.
