I often hear that if women had more power,then there would be less war. Sparta one of the most warlike nations of all time was a matriarchy. In general,average men had little freedom, presuming they survived, since it was MALE babies left outside overnight to test their mettle. Female babies needn’t suffer this trial, interestingly. Men were forced into military service to protect a matriarchal society back home. Hmmm, I wouldn’t want to be a man in that society.
