She could pick berries and nuts from the trees. However, in Northern
Europe during the Ice Age, the food consisted of caribou, reindeer and
sea animals such as seals. Women were not physically strong enough to
chase and catch such animals. Therefore, she needed to catch a man who
would bring her food consistently.
Of course, You’ve nailed it. This explains why the early idols and
doll figurines went from the very full figured rotund Venus types to
the later Pamela Anderson type representations.
Thank goodness that European woman didn’t develop a taste for those
northern bog cranberries!
