How would you re-interpret Eve in a way that affirms the dignity of and respect for women and men?

Some people read the story of Genesis (link below) as allegorical and having hidden spiritual meaning that transcends the literal sense of the sacred text.  On the other hand, others insist that the story stands as the literal, historical truth.  Reflect upon my lectures, Ronna Detrick’s talk and the story in Genesis.  How would you re-interpret Eve in a way that affirms the dignity of and respect for women and men?
