The legend of Lilith is one of a number of oral traditions of the Jews. In the episode of Lilith, supposedly woman was originally created equal to man from the same stuff.
That was not ever quite going to be worked out. Therefore God started over, and Eve became the "first" woman. She was to be subordinate as she was taken from man (the rib thing), something like that. There is a lot of information on it, and I am sure that a Google search would help.
I have always viewed it as sort of an inside joke among rabbis and scribes from ancient times.
