Why Do Men Rule the World? with Dr. Alice Evans

Factually! with Adam Conover #149 March 22, 2022

Around the world and for most of history, human societies have been dominated by men. Why? Professor and author of the forthcoming “The Great Gender Divergence”, Dr. Alice Evans, joins Adam to explain how male governance springs from systems of inheritance, why matrilineal systems tend to convert to patrilineal ones, and why we’re seeing progress on gender equality around the world. You can follow Alice’s work on Twitter at @_alice_evans
