Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Who was taught the Torah first? Men or women?
בַּחֹ֙דֶשׁ֙ הַשְּׁלִישִׁ֔י לְצֵ֥את בְּנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מֵאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרָ֑יִם בַּיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה בָּ֖אוּ מִדְבַּ֥ר סִינָֽי׃
On the third new moon after the Israelites had gone forth from the land of Egypt, on that very day, they entered the wilderness of Sinai.
After Hashem saw what happened when He only told Adam not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge, He now asked Moshe to first convey the Torah to the women, and only afterward to the men.
Hashem told Moshe that in order for the Torah to be well received, he should teach it in a gentle manner to the women, and teach the punishments for non-observance of the commandments to the men.
(Rashi on the Midrash; Mechilta, Rabbi MiLubavitch)
