    Did women have more "say" in the "paleolythic" age compared to our turn of the century Western European women?

    I remember reading something that Laurent van der Post wrote that he was suprised that women could end the relationship/marriage....and simply choose another partner? (This is assuming Bushmen in the 50's "lived" a Paleo life.)

    Also I remember seeing a tv show where "First world" men went to experience rites and tests of manhood in some rainforest with a tribe (for convenience sake I will call still in the "Paleo" era. The tribesman loved the whole experience but as a result were often so tired from the excitement of the visitors..that they were too tired to have intercourse with their wives after which their wives commenced beating up the visitors.

    What my question comes down to I suppose is: Are there theories on the role/position of women in the "stone age" that you know of?

    We actually had a thread that touched on this a few months ago, here: From Paleolithic to Neolithic -- Gender role changes and other interesting facts

    Might be worth a read.
