Was Satan a feminist? Some would argue yes, based on a review of Satan and Eve's interaction in the Garden of Eden. Eve was the first to heed Satan’s advice to eat of the forbidden fruit. The notion of woman as the devil’s accomplice is prominent throughout the history of Christianity. During the nineteenth century, rebellious females performed counter-readings of this misogynist tradition. Lucifer was reconceptualized as a feminist liberator of womankind, and Eve became a heroine. In these reimaginings, Satan is an ally in the struggle against a patriarchy supported by God the Father and his male priests. Rather than viewing women as the weaker sex, women were natural rebels through Eve, who dared to disobey God by eating from the Tree of Knowledge, and in a way, became free, with Satan by her side as an unlikely friend.
