Pandora was the first woman created. Pandora means "all gifts".
Soon after Pandora was created, Prometheus, who was a Titan, molded a creature with two legs and breathed life into it. It was the first human male.
Pandora wed the male and Zeus gave Pandora a box as a wedding gift. Prometheus and Epimetheus warned Pandora not to open it, but Pandora did not listen.
When she opened the box all the evil in the world escaped. She closed the box before hope could get out. That is why we still have hope.
