Ithas been an uphill task to recognize the existence of any objectwithout a name, thus naming is vital in the manipulation of reality.Naming has been drawn from the past and it is not a neutral or randomaction. Those from creation, who have wielded the power of naming,have influenced the way we perceived the world today. This has been amale responsibility, and people took the names that were given. It isfrom there, a construct of supreme male and insubordinate femalefigures were created.
TheBible has been structured in a way that man is superior, yet we aretold they were all created in the image of God. This depicts God as amasculine, which the writer claims it has been a political move toensure that men are supreme. The author claims that, there have beendifferent versions of creation and fall, but those that advocateotherwise than a patriarchal story were eliminated. Thus, mencollectively took away the power to name from women. With time thebiblical information was massaged to an extent, it reinforced man asthe central figure in the world while it kept the woman at bay.
Awoman is stereotyped as dangerous, while a man is elevated andassociated with masculine God. Any religious association of a womanwas seen as a cult, while those of men were seen as divine. Theeffort to pinpoint God as a female or anything less than a masculinefigure was disposed of. That superiority and inferiority principleare still the one encoded in our languages today, and if women are tobreak off from it, they must reclaim their power of naming.
