societal change - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
As we students relaxed in the summer light of the courtyard auditorium, breathing in the heavenly aroma of the roses, Professor Bruce began the his lecture. "Monogamy (over polygamy) induced societal changes partly through the reduction in tesosterone levels in males who, in greater numbers, we able to marry and become fathers. Poverty extremes work against this stablising force in multiple ways, yet the most obvious is that fewer males will feel that they will have the economic ability to marry and support children. A society may look at two main ways to correct this. One is to put more economic support in place for the poorest in society, to make family life viable. To not do this risks the other dire 'solution' of striking out at women's rights, to compel them to marry and/or become mothers even if their best interests are served by remaining single and taking care of only themselves. We now see the rise in calls for both support for the cost of living and misogynistic behaviours to restrict the rights of women. The only good choice for societal stability is supporting the poor and we have centuries of anthropology to support this conclusion," he said.
