The sad thing is that in both Greek myth and in the Christian religion (at least) it's a woman who brings evil upon the world (Pandora opened the box, Eve took the fruit and gave some to Adam). Not that it means everything, mind you, just an observation. On a related note, did you ever notice that in Spanish, "problem" (problema) is a feminine noun? Once again, just something I've noticed.
lol i take it you don't know the story then...pandora's box is what contained the seven deadly sins...when pandora opened the box it released the sins into the world but she managed to capture "hope" for mankind
