Strong WomenI have no idea how it all started.
Probably when some ultra-hairy dude peered out from under his unibrow one morning long ago, staring coldly into the eyes of his "lady friend" (who he had taken by blunt-trauma force from a neighboring village), and let a couple of masculine snorts and grunts fly - and that was enough to get the unspoken message across.
"You stay here and tidy up the cave and cook something - and maybe have a baby while you're at it - while I hit the forest to do whatever the heck I feel like doing."
Either way, the whole idea of men being in charge of just about everything took a nice, firm hold,and stuck around for the next gillion years. It's one of the modern marvels of progressive history, really. It never fails to blow our collective minds that we humans have continually managed to get SO MUCH WRONG for SO LONG.
