Did matriarchy ever exist?

Class finishes

Speaker(s)
Description

Almost every indigenous society has a myth which tells of a time when women ruled the world. Professor Chris Knight will analyze a range of indigenous myths from Amazonia, Africa and Australia which describe the moment when men violently overthrew women's rule and established patriarchy through terror. He will then survey ethnographic, archaeological and genetic evidence bearing on gender relations over the course of human evolution and history.
