    Exceptions, being exceptional, tend to be more widely known - so anyone who isn't aware of them clearly doesn't know a great deal.

    That does not change the fact that the vast majorities of tribes are patriarchies. And no, rare exception don't necessarily have to be on anyone's radar.

    It seems to me that you (and others in this thread) are improperly conflating females who exceptionally lead societies which are generally patriarchal with actual matriarchal societies. You're also IMO missing the larger point that, while there have been occasional matriarchies among primitive tribes, it is in patriarchies that civilization developed and advanced.

    Societies change and evolve. The greater physical strength of men was necessary to sustain societies in the past, nowadays intellectual strength is what counts most regardless of gender. And, whilst monogamy is nowadays the norm in the developed world, anthropologists believe that polygamy was the norm through human history. So your broad-brush claim that societies have always been patriarchal and should remain patriarchal in not a valid argument. There have been many variations throughout human history.
