At least among our ancestors, the primates.
And quite an ideal society it is, really.
Bonobos, to the exact opposite, live in female managed societies where violence is not tolerated, where rape and infanticide do not exist, where other species are not killed, and where a wide variety of enjoyable sexual activities are used to enhance friendships and to resolve conflicts.http://www.dlwaldron.com/bonobos.html
We share 99 per cent of our DNA with bonobos yet we deal with conflict so differently. Is the reason for that difference in nature or nurture. Is it in our genes, or is it because females manage bonobo society, while males run all other primate societies.
Think we humans could learn a lot from them. Also goes to explain, how a bit of female dominance could lead human society towards the better.
