Women of the past hunted alongside men because society was vastly different. If something happened to the man of the house, the woman had to know how to feed the family, not just sit around and wait for some tall stranger to ride in and save her like in the movies. It was a hard and brutal life, and everyone, including the woman, had to know what to do.
So the next time you hear some liberal pontificate that guns and hunting are only for men and that women were and had never been allowed to take part because they were never let out of the kitchen, remember that as long as mankind has been hunting, women have been right there alongside the man in their matching loincloths dragging that wooly mammoth leg back to the cave.
