In the book of Genesis, mankind is instructed to take charge of the world and to be custodians of all that God had created. This mandate is not gender based – it is an instruction to mankind, male and female. When we were just a few millions and our technology limited, this was fine. If we started a fire and it got out of hand, it hardly made a blip on the horizon. Now that we are 6 billion and growing, everything matters.
