@jwundubbed: it’s called a matriarchy. And it has been tried from Africa to China to Native Americans and European aristocracy. It never lasts, because women by and large aren’t interested in conquests and rule. It’s simple biology, women have at most from 15-45 to reproduce, but typically between 21 and 30 is the safest period to attract a mate and reproduce, less than 1/3-1/10th of an average human lifespan.
Men can reproduce from puberty until they die, so the biological pressures aren’t the same. Then there is the fact that human babies are helpless for ~10-15 years. That cuts out the prime period of human life, the primary periods of life where you are smart and powerful enough to actually conquer and rule for females and dedicates it to reproduction. And you can choose as a female to not reproduce and instead rule, but that leaves no room for an heir, so within 1-3 generations, this ends.
