We live in a largely patriarchal society where our leaders are men, our language is essentially based on men (chairman, men at work, mailman, etc.), our weapons look like dicks, our buildings look like cocks, all our games involve balls of some sort, men are paid more than women, men are given more attention, men are credited most of the time and men are considered the head of the family.
Yet, two of Evolution’s oldest success stories – the ants and the bees – are led by a woman and it’s been the case for close to 200 million years. They’ve been around all this while, surviving amazingly well without any internal problems or squabbles. Do the ants and bees know something we don’t?
