What IF Eve ate the apple? In Christian faith, would women have been looked at "better" than they were? Does this really have anything to do with how females and males are?
In the story she did eat the fruit first. But traditionally women have always been considered lesser than men in every religion. I do not know why other women choose to join these religions when they are not considered equal.
So it's funny, but it's never mentioned that it's an apple.
She did. They both ate the fruit, and all their offspring were cursed because of their sin. The only escape is to accept the Salvation offered through the Crucifixion & Resurrection of Jesus. See I Timothy 2:9-15 for the role of women in the Church.
