Scientists have two versions of the disappearance of matriarchy

Recent studies have shown that ladies saddle for millions of years. And then a man came to power. Why? Scientists have two versions of the disappearance of matriarchy

1 VERSION Geographic:

Women went from the old familiar places, and started life from scratch in the new territories, where they had taken power into their own hands

Only in textbooks life ancient woman seemed hopeless and sad. Present was scary as stumbles into a cave hairy macho with a bloody carcass of a wild boar on his shoulders. Throwing meat to the fire. And hairy paw — DAC for wool lady and knocks on the stone floor, and growls. But it appeared that the subordinate position of women in the ancient world — just a figment of our imagination. In fact, the proud and powerful bosses on Amazon downtrodden and lazy men as much in millions of years. This is the conclusion reached by researchers at Oxford University, who published their results in the journal Nature.

— Ladies dominated the prehistoric times: to make responsible decisions in his tribe were matriarch battles — says Professor Julia Lee-Thorp.

But where is lovely, though, and unshaven, a learning by top management?

It turned out that the experience of our senior prapraprababki recruited on long journeys. And the new places, far away from his native glade, they had not only to take power into their own hands, but sometimes — a club to subdue unruly natives.

And our praprapradedki from their homes — or foot. They came out of the caves are extremely reluctant only when hungry. More time — was asleep, and — for lack of TV sets — staring at the stars.

— We analyzed the fossilized remains of about clusters of caves near Johannesburg (South Africa), and found that 90% of males spent in the area all his life, while at least half of the females came from afar — explains Professor Sandi Copeland of the Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig Max Planck Society.

Of course, our ancestors did not have tickets, confirming their trip. Scientists made their findings by examining the teeth of the remains of members of two types — "Australopithecus africanus" and "Paranthropus massive", the first of which may be the direct ancestor of humans. Age fossils — 1.8-2.2 million years. Place of birth of individuals installed by strontium in their dental tissues, and sexual identity — the size of the molars. But why ladies so willingly left inhabited caves, something slammed goodbye?

— The fact that males prefer to stay put, females indirectly forced to leave their communities in order to avoid inbreeding — said Dr. Copeland.

But now, after a few million years, came "X hour" — and the role has changed. According to scientists at Oxford, between 2,4-1,7 million years ago in the life of prehistoric animals of both sexes, something happened that changed the glorious domination females.

Women settled, began to live with men in the same area. And, apparently, so become familiar gentlemen, those are the ladies shout, and later took the saddle at all. So came the patriarchy.

Gastronomic 2 VERSION:

Women are easily transferred famine, men also lost their senses

Famine in the past have left their mark on the metabolism. The fact is that our body is used to make stocks. In normal male power — puts a "rainy day" mostly whites, women — fat. But the brain reacts to the meager rations in the sexes differently.

Dr. Robert Clarke of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center studied the rat — a person close to the animals in terms of the structure of the brain. Modeled on their neurons — nerve cells of the brain — just a 72-hour fast. He discovered that the male brain is much more affected by hunger.

— Female neurons use stocks of fatty acids and survive — explains Clark — male same die.

After 24 hours in the male brain dramatically — by 70 percent — falls to the ability of cellular respiration. They are intense and so nazyvamaya autophagy — self-absorption. Men eat neurons themselves. And their owners strongly glupeyut. The opposite sex is of sound mind and memory.

And here, perhaps, lies the secret for so long existed in the world of matriarchy. After all, our ancestors were hungry often. And during these hard times men — stupefied no steak — nothing to do but to be henpecked. After all, ladies easily endure the hardships forced another diet. And brought into play wit: looking for edible herbs, berries, to support the weakened Cavaliers.

— Decision imposed a burden on women, — says Dr. Clark. — They, suddenly becoming smarter than men, and to ensure the survival of the tribe. It is possible that it is in the lean years and originated matriarchy.

Instead of an epilogue

Council men of "KP": not to go back to the days of hard matriarchy, you should eat to feed their women and away from myself let go.
