Evolutionary Feminism: Rekindling Women's Sexual Power

Like all species that employ sexual reproduction, humans developed differentiation not only in male and female biology, but also psychology, to enhance reproductive fitness. In our paleolithic circumstances, pressures revolved around the interdependence of individuals in tribal society and the biological necessities of long-term childhood dependence. Societies enmeshed as women offered sexual access outside of reproduction as a means of channelling high male sexual energy into other tangible benefits for themselves and their societies. In post-agricultural times, these means of interacting have been disrupted through patriarchal domination. Modern feminism has attempted to reverse this trend and liberate women, but it fails to recognize and utilize the embedded psychology of males and females, mistakenly encouraging women to behave more like modern men instead of more like ancient women. An evolutionary feminist perspective provides a means for restoring relationship dynamics that are healthiest and most psychologically and materially rewarding to all parties.
