In his book The Descent of Man , Darwin exposed the idea of sexual selection as a major principle of human evolution. This selection is operated by females to mate and reproduce with some partners that are gifted with more qualities than others, and more to their taste. At more evolved stages, sexual selection was exerted by men who became able to choose the women most attractive to their taste. However, Darwin insists, sexual selection in the human species is limited by a certain of cultural practices. If Darwin's demonstration sometimes carried the prejudices of his times regarding gender differences he was the first who took into the importance of sexual choices in his view on evolution, and who insisted on the evolutionary role of women at the dawn of humanity.
Thus, he opened the space for a rich reflection, which after him was widely developed and discussed in anthropological and gender studies. Download PDF Download full issue.
