A woman is a female human being. The word woman is reserved for an adult, with girl being the usual term for a female child or adolescent; the plural women is sometimes used for female humans, regardless of age, as in phrases such as "women's rights". Women with typical genetic development are capable of giving birth from puberty until menopause. There are trans women, intersex women; the spelling of "woman" in English has progressed over the past millennium from wīfmann to wīmmann to wumman, the modern spelling woman. In Old English, wīfmann meant "female human", whereas wēr meant "male human". Mann or monn had a gender-neutral meaning of "human", corresponding to Modern English "person" or "someone"; the medial labial consonants f and m in wīfmann coalesced into the modern form "woman", while the initial element wīf, which meant "female", underwent semantic narrowing to the sense of a married woman. It is a popular misconception that the term "woman" is etymologically connected to "womb". "Womb" is from the Old English word wambe meaning "stomach".
The symbol for the planet and goddess Venus or Aphrodite in Greek is the sign used in biology for the female sex. It is a stylized representation of the goddess Venus's hand-mirror or an abstract symbol for the goddess: a circle with a small equilateral cross underneath; the Venus symbol represented femininity, in ancient alchemy stood for copper. Alchemists constructed the symbol from a circle above an equilateral cross. Womanhood is the period in a human female's life after she has passed through childhood and adolescence around age 18; the word woman can be used to mean any female human, or to mean an adult female human as contrasted with girl. The word girl meant "young person of either sex" in English; the term girl is sometimes used colloquially to refer to a unmarried woman. In particular common terms such as office girl are no longer used. Conversely, in certain cultures which link family honor with female virginity, the word girl is still used to refer to a never-married woman. There are various words used to refer to the quality of being a woman.
The term "womanhood" means the state of being a woman, having passed the menarche. Menarche, the onset of menstruation, occurs on average at age 12–13. Many cultures have rites of passage to symbolize a girl's coming of age, such as confirmation in some branches of Christianity, bat mitzvah in Judaism, or just the custom of a special celebration for a certain birthday, like the quinceañera of Latin America; the earliest women whose names are known through archaeology include: Neithhotep, the wife of Narmer and the first queen of ancient Egypt. Merneith and regent of ancient Egypt during the first dynasty, she may have been ruler of Egypt in her own right. Merit-Ptah lived in Egypt and is the earliest known female physician and scientist. Peseshet, a physician in Ancient Egypt. Puabi, or Shubad – queen of Ur whose tomb was discovered with many expensive artifacts. Other known pre-Sargonic queens of Ur include Ashusikildigir and Gansamannu. Kugbau, a taverness from Kish chosen by the Nippur priesthood to become hegemonic ruler of Sumer, in ages deified as "Kubaba".
Tashlultum, Akkadian queen, wife of Sargon of Akkad and mother of Enheduanna. Baranamtarra and influential queen of Lugalanda of Lagash. Other known pre-Sargonic queens of the first Lagash dynasty include Menbara-abzu, Ashume'eren, Ninkhilisug and Shagshag, the names of several princesses are known. Enheduanna, the high priestess of the temple of the Moon God in the Sumerian city-state of Ur and the first known poet and first named author of either gender. Shibtu, king Zimrilim's consort and queen of the Syrian city-state of Mari. During her husband's absence, she ruled as regent of Mari and enjoyed extensive administrative powers as queen. In terms of biology, the female sex organs are involved in the reproductive system, whereas the secondary sex characteristics are involved in nurturing children or, in some cultures, attracting a mate; the ovaries, in addition to their regulatory function producing hormones, produce female gametes called eggs which, when fertilized by male gametes, form new genetic individuals

Adam and Eve
Adam and Eve, according to the creation myth of the Abrahamic religions, were the first man and woman. They are central to the belief that humanity is in essence a single family, with everyone descended from a single pair of original ancestors, it provides the basis for the doctrines of the fall of man and original sin that are important beliefs in Christianity, although not held in Judaism or Islam. In the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible, chapters one through five, there are two creation narratives with two distinct perspectives. In the first and Eve are not named. Instead, God created humankind in God's image and instructed them to multiply and to be stewards over everything else that God had made. In the second narrative, God fashions places him in the Garden of Eden. Adam is told that he can eat of all the trees in the garden, except for a tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Subsequently, Eve is created from one of Adam's ribs to be Adam's companion, they are unembarrassed about their nakedness.
However, a serpent deceives Eve into eating fruit from the forbidden tree, she gives some of the fruit to Adam. These acts give them additional knowledge, but it gives them the ability to conjure negative and destructive concepts such as shame and evil. God curses the serpent and the ground. God prophetically tells the woman and the man what will be the consequences of their sin of disobeying God, he banishes them from the Garden of Eden. The story underwent extensive elaboration in Abrahamic traditions, it has been extensively analyzed by modern biblical scholars. Interpretations and beliefs regarding Adam and Eve and the story revolving around them vary across religions and sects; the story of Adam and Eve is depicted in art, it has had an important influence in literature and poetry. The story of the fall of Adam is considered to be an allegory. There is physical evidence that Eve never existed. Adam and Eve are figures from the primeval history, the Bible's mythic history of the first years of the world's existence.
The History tells how God creates the world and all its beings and places the first man and woman in his Garden of Eden, how the first couple are expelled from God's presence, of the first murder which follows, God's decision to destroy the world and save only the righteous Noah and his sons. Although the new world is as sinful as the old, God has resolved never again to destroy the world by flood, the History ends with Terah, the father of Abraham, from whom will descend God's chosen people, the Israelites. Adam and Eve are first woman. Adam's name appears first in Genesis 1 with a collective sense, as "mankind". In these chapters God fashions "the man" from earth, breathes life into his nostrils, makes him a caretaker over creation. God next creates for the man a "helper corresponding to him", from his side or rib, she is called ishsha, "woman", the text says, she is formed from ish, "man". The man receives her with joy, the reader is told that from this moment a man will leave his parents to "cling" to a woman, the two becoming one flesh.
The first man and woman are in God's Garden of Eden, where all creation is vegetarian and there is no violence. They are permitted to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; the woman is tempted by a talking serpent to eat the forbidden fruit, gives some to the man, who eats also.. God curses all three, the man to a lifetime of hard labour followed by death, the woman to the pain of childbirth and to subordination to her husband, the serpent to go on his belly and suffer the enmity of both man and woman. God clothes the nakedness of the man and woman, who have become god-like in knowing good and evil banishes them from the garden lest they eat the fruit of a second tree, the tree of life, live forever; the story continues in Genesis 3 with the "expulsion from Eden" narrative. A form analysis of Genesis 3 reveals that this portion of the story can be characterized as a parable or "wisdom tale" in the wisdom tradition; the poetic addresses of the chapter belong to a speculative type of wisdom that questions the paradoxes and harsh realities of life.
This characterization is determined by the narrative's format and the plot. The form of Genesis 3 is shaped by its vocabulary, making use of various puns and double entendres; the expulsion from Eden narrative begins with a dialogue between the woman and a serpent, identified in Genesis 3:1 as an animal, more crafty than any other animal made by God, although Genesis does not identify the serpent with Satan.
