Gender inequality is caused by certain types of social background, supportive evidence is from modern hunter gathers. If we started with mutual gender interdependency, how did it happen, what causes those behaviors? Proconsuls: After 6 million years ago we have definite hominids. Somewhere between 8 and 6 millions years ago the pongids branched from the hominids, they apes when there ways and ours went their way. We know this from the fossil record, between 8-6 million years is that animals show exactly what you would predict in evolutionary theory, a mixture of apelike traits and humanlike traits. A completely seperate line of evidence comes from genetics. Geneticists can compare dna from modern chimpanzees and human modern ? The DNA changes through time, so we can estimate how long it took for each
