Dames at Sea

By From the August 1996 issue

"Human males operating in groups -- talking, planning strategies, devising traps, improving weapons, sharing the spoils -- became the most successful biological phenomenon on earth. In the process, the male-grouping became an essential evolutionary element in human nature. Group loyalties and powerful bonds of attachment went beyond mere cultural influences... A misguided but vociferous minority is campaigning to conceal human gender differences and to obscure the evolutionary truth about our species."
—anthropologist Desmond Morris in his foreword to the 1984 edition of Lionel Tiger's
Men in Groups.
