Did you know that many aspects of so-called human 'civilization' were developed by females in the Stone Age, long before men domesticated animals - from fire, hearth, and cooking, to dance, art, medicine, language, stories, ritual, trade, settlement, pottery, textile, calendar, metal, and more...
What are gynocentric practices and female-centered cultures like? Can an understanding of ecogynecology help to solve the massive problems of climate change and species extinction? Can female governance help to restore the balance with nature and heal our relationships with animals?
There is no domestic violence in matrifocal groups, and men live happier when women are in charge. Moreover, adoption of a Mother's gift economy can help end global poverty, inequity, and discrimination. Ancient gynecological perceptions and spirituality can also help us to live simpler and happier lives.
There are 28 chapters divided into five sections, loosely organized from human prehistory to the dawn of male rule 8,000 years ago. The book interweaves female prehistory, archaeology, anthropology, genetics, evolutionary biology, art, culture, theology and theory.

What was the Paleo Diet?
Was the Paleo diet influenced more by female gatherers or by male hunters? Were human females more important for food security in the Stone Age than men?
Did you know there are more than 11,000 known Goddesses around the world? For millions of years, hominids lived in gynocentric or female-centered cultures, and worshiped an Earth Goddess. Around 8,000 years ago, domestication led to men's harnessing of animal power to gain the superior strength and speed of cyborgs. Men then subjugated females and transcended the Goddesses and Nature to bond with male sky magic. The Cyborgs' defeat of the Earth Goddess is the root of the present ecological and social crisis.
