National Geographic
A new study has revealed that most prehistoric art was probably done by women, because the majority (75%) of handprints found in caves (like this one at Pech Merle, France) have proven to be made by females by digitally measuring the difference in length of the fingers. The ring & index fingers of women are about the same length, whereas the ring fingers of men tend to be longer. Photo by Jean Vertut.

Goddess figurines. A few millennia ago, women were important, and were widely "worshiped". When did society begin suppressing women? They were at the center of trades, life, music and dance and feasting and science for hundreds of thousands of years. Now, the dominant religions insist they cover their bodies. Males insist that women be subordinate. Men feel threatened by women. What happened?

Bird Figurine 22th-21th millenium BC, Paleolithic. Mammoth ivory, Malta settlement. This elongated figure of a flying bird has a small egg-shaped head and a long neck. The rounded end of the body has a hole drilled from one side. On either side of the body are short, broad projections representing outspread wings. Despite the stylization in modelling, the resemblance to a swan in flight is obvious. Such figurines were worn around the neck, with the bird's head down.
