Not necessarily so. The Adam could have mated with only one woman; but the diversity in female lineages could have arisen from female lines that all daughtered out. Indeed all the female lines from the daughters of the Adam could have son'ed out (in analogy to daughter out).

who lived in African about 60,000 years ago. However, that one man
mated with several different women, a diverse group, so that the
common origin of all women today was 150,000 years ago
