The 'S' Word

Genesis 3:16 says, “To the woman He said: I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain you shall bring forth children; your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”

Notice God told Eve her desire would be for her husband and that her husband would rule over her. Since Eve ‘was the mother of all living’ (Genesis 3:20), He was essentially saying the same thing to every woman – that every husband is to rule over his wife.
