Lilith refused to submit to the rules of the patriarchy and she was cast from the Garden of Eden for her disobedience . Unbroken and unbowed , she was painted as a demon because of her rebellion . Lilith teaches us that we may be demonized as we pull off the chains of the patriarchy , but we will be free . Lilith reminds us that we can survive anything . We can plant our own sacred garden anywhere we choose .
