Why failing to consider half the population will lead to unbalanced theories and miss key perspectives. Rebecca Wragg Sykes is a celebrated archaeologist, author of "Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art". In this wonderful piece for Aeon magazine, she transports us thousands of years into our past to give us a detailed analysis of the lives and costumes of neanderthal women, exploring among many other things as well, her field's bias against women.
