History is full of famous men and very few famous women. Women in history who are featured are usually those who helped men get famous, or “wicked women” whose “evil” was rooted out by “righteous men”.
Occasionally there’s a woman ruler in her own right, one who slipped thru the alpha male net and held a significant governance role. When this happens she is often much maligned or virtually ignored in history. Sometimes the male who takes over after her simply takes the credit for her achievements.
