5. There's a whole thing about the diversity of roles in anthropology

The argument that hunters didn’t sustain the family/band unit, it was the gathering and the hearth keepers if you will. Of course women hunted is how I think, if human traveled small bands, what happened if their make hunters were sick or incapacitated? It was a dangerous world with dangerous prey.

The big question of course, is why do women live past menopause if “breeding” is the only purpose? Nobody quite knows, but I will always love the grandmother theory
