Calling on evolutionary theory and recent field observations of primates, Hrdy, a sociobiologist and feminist, dispels some of the myths about the nature of females and female sexuality, and suggests new hypotheses about the evolution of women.
It is an understatement to say that this is a provocative essay. Although the book is written for a general audience, it will compel specialists to reconsider many of their assumptions about the evolution of primate females. Those interested in evolutionary influences upon human social behavior will be stimulated and challenged. Undoubtedly, many of the hypotheses will be controversial, and some may be disturbing.--Joan B. Silk "Ethnology and Sociology "
