That concept might be the mistake. We would not be here if Homo Sapiens when he emerged 300,000 years ago had not had a fundamental division of labor, with women pregnant or with babes or with young infants all the time from 13 to 29 (life expectancy 29) to guarantee the survival and expansion of the species with something like ten pregnancies, one every eighteen months. Women collectively took care of the children and women had milk all the time since they were always pregnant or just out of pregancy.
At the same time it has been proved that the ritualistic paintings in caves, in Indonesia or in Europe, were performed by women. They had a very spiritual role to play in society along with bringing three to four children to adult age.
