Abstract
“Evenisation”, borrowed from the biblical Eve, can be
defined as the long-developed patriarchal hegemony
describing women as inferior, sexually debased, and the
patriarchate’s urge for domesticated, passive and subdued
female figures that are under the total control of men.
This thesis is a genealogy of oppression of women,
its causes and implementations, emphasizing the
evolutionary women´s sexual ability as exposed in the
earliest civilisations, with special focus on the Mesopotamian
pre-patriarchal civilisations and the paradigm
shift that led to male domination, creation of three
female archetypes: Lilith, Eve and Virgin Mary and the
sexual objectification of women.
Extensive use is made of nearly 400 literary compositions... (More)

Extensive use is made of nearly 400 literary compositions
recorded from sources originating in Ancient
Mesopotamia (today´s Iraq), and dating to the late
third and early second millennia B.E. Together with
the Bible, biblical commentary sources, esoteric Jewish
mysticism and early church father teachings, the
study analyses how the change of view on women was
transformed during these millennia and the first millennium
E., and how this influenced modern society.
Based on the present research, I argue that successful
warrior tribes from Eurasia, who after domesticating
the horse and developing advanced weaponry
through sophisticated metallurgical processes, succeeded
in altering the path of civilization from fertility
worship and an equal sexual affirmation onto a road
towards male supremacy and oppression of women. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
”Evanisering”, lånat från bibliska Eva, definierar den
långa utveckling av patriarkal hegemoni som beskriver
kvinnor som underlägsna och sexuellt lägre stående
och enligt patriarkatets krav på en tämjd, passiv och
underdånig feminin figur under mannens totala kontroll.
Uppsatsen är en genealogi över kvinnoförtrycket,
dess orsaker och implementeringar, men tar även upp
den evolutionärt kvinnliga sexuella förmågan såsom
den uttrycktes i de första civilisationerna. Speciell fokus
läggs på den mesopotamska pre-patriarkala civilisationen
och det paradigmskifte som ledde fram till manlig
dominans över kvinnor och skapandet av tre feminina
arketyper; Lilith, Eva och Jungfru Maria samt sexuell
objektifiering av kvinnor.

och det paradigmskifte som ledde fram till manlig
dominans över kvinnor och skapandet av tre feminina
arketyper; Lilith, Eva och Jungfru Maria samt sexuell
objektifiering av kvinnor.
Uppsatsen baseras bland annat på närmare 400 litterära
texter från antika mesopotamska källor (dagens
Irak) från 3000- och 2000-talet f.kr. Tillsammans med
Bibeln, bibliska kommenterande verk, esoterisk judisk
mystik och tidiga kyrkofäders undervisning, analyserar
uppsatsen hur kvinnobilden förändrades under tredje
och andra milleniet f.kr, första århundradet e.kr. och
dess inflytande på vårt moderna samhälle.
I uppsatsen hävdas att framgångsrika krigiska stammar
i Euroasien, efter tämjandet av hästen och utvecklandet
av avancerade vapen genom sofistikerade metallurgiska
processer, påverkade de första civilisationernas
utveckling från fertilitetsdyrkande, jämlik sexuell
affirmation, till manlig könsmakt och kvinnoförtryck. (Less)
