Mary Ritter Beard :

Woman’s success in lifting men out of their way of life nearly resembling that of the beasts—who merely hunted and fished for food, who found shelter where they could in jungles, in trees, and caves—was a civilizing triumph.

[Mary Ritter Beard (1876-1958), U.S. historian. Woman as Force in History, ch. 12 (1946).]
