I saw this post on Facebook, and wondered what people here thought, especially in regards to female equality.

Article of Faith #2 says: “We believe that man will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.” But, as we know from the temple and scripture, women ARE punished for Eve’s transgression. Genesis 3:16- “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”

Why are women punished for Eve’s transgression, if we believe we should all be punished for our own sins?
