Helke Sander: The Emergence of Gender Hierarchy


When and why did the division of labour between the sexes emerge? At the beginning of human history, each and every person fended for themselves. What happened to cause activities to become differentiated? In illuminating flashbacks and wide ranging intellectual thoughts, in her latest book, Die Entstehung der Geschlechterhierarchie: Als unbeabsichtigte Nebenwirkung sozialer Folgen der Gebärfähigkeit und des Fellverlusts, Helke Sander shows that originally there was no “natural” division of labour.
