Abstract: ...She started with at least half of the destiny of the race in her keeping.1 Woman - as keeper of the cave, cultivator of the soil, and guardian of the child - probably became the center of the earliest civilization. The society of the patriarch, stemming from the demands of increased population, gave rise to custom and law which sanctioned man's power over woman.
