According to Jewish lore, Lilith was the first wife of Adam.  Although not mentioned directly in the Bible, Lilith has been used to explain the two contradictory versions of Creation within the book of Genesis.  Like Adam, Lilith was created from the dust and the earth, making them equal to one another.  When Lilith refused to lie beneath Adam, asserting her equality, Adam insisted that she should perform her wifely duties. 

By refusing to submit, Lilith incurred the wrath of God and fled to the Red Sea, where she was cast from paradise forever and became the succubus (a temptress of innocent men), the breeder of evil spirits, and a child-murdering monster of the night.  Lilith's defiance of the masculine order forced her to become the ultimate symbol of all that is demonised within the traditional patriarchal society: chaos, seduction, and ungodliness.

It is this type of representation of the supposedly fallen woman that has contributed to the outdated and entrenched perceptions of femininity.  By examining such a defiant figure as Lilith, The (Un)Holy Trinity seeks to draw attention to these dangerous perceptions of powerful women as being shameful, or demonic and to question why these attitudes still persist today.  

Please help me to not only question why these dangerous attitudes persit, but to make people aware that they do and how limiting and harmful they can be to both men, women and nonbinary people, but supporting the campaign.

Thank you!
