Before 3000 BC, for over 1 million years (according to Cynthia Eller), women were worshipped for their childbearing powers, as it had not yet been discovered that men were involved at all, and so societies were much more peaceful as a result. Patriarchy is apparently only 5000 years old and brought with it hierarchies and gender inequality. Matriarchy is not, as you may believe, women 'ruling' but rather a system that celebrates gender equality and respect for living creatures. What do you think - would the world be a more peaceful place today if there were more women in power?
