According to the Book of Genesis, God first created man. Until this book this justified treating women as inferior.

The Descent of Woman is a pioneering work, the first to argue for the equal role of women in human evolution. On its first publication in 1972 it created an international debate and became a rallying point for feminism, changing the terminology of anthropologists forever.

This lively, informative book sets out to solve the riddle of our origins; its answer is controversial. Elaine Morgan has made the Aquatic Ape Hypothesis a plausible alternative to conventional theories of evolution and The Descent of Woman first set out an understanding of who humans are and where they came from.
