My rather amateurish opinion would state that women would be the first to set up communes and defensible points, Women are not the helpless victims so often portrayed in the b rated post apocalyptic shows. They will come together faster then men if a serious need is shown. They will have a greater respect for, and a drive to reestablish laws and social customs.

Stability is the greatest motivator here.

I imagine a rather well fortified area with a sign stating "we don't need anymore men."

Women outnumber men, they always have, and unless the human race changes drastically, they always will. In a shtf scenario, men will become even more scarce.

...and yes a single woman in the "wild" is just as threatening to you as a single man. When survival is on the line, you can lay your sexist ideas at the door.
And then plunge that dagger deep into the back of his scull.
Dam girl simmer down your scaring me.

What happen to love thy man and thy man loves you back.

You no got ya back love.

Women are great yes. And when given the chance to live they are great survivors and thrive.

That is why men have gotten as far as they have in life. A man is only as good as the lady by his side.

totally agree. I think women will instinctively group up, gathering stragglers on the way so to speak. Though protective and fierce women tend to see the benefits in safety in numbers in stead of being or have serious territorial issues. A lion pride is a good example, the women get along, do the work, work together to accomplish a goal (hunting), the males are to busy mating and guarding the territory and puffing up to look fierce.

But basically...a large enough pride could more than likely survive perfectly fine with out a constant male presence.

No doubt. Women need to have someone take care of them. Not a 2pChump Your probably correct on that one as well. You may need a whip or crop they sometimes they need a little encoragement.

Exactly. I would form my own group. Since women just are not as strong physically as men, I would have a "clan" I would allow selective men, but ONLY id they showed they could contribute and could be trusted. Mess up ONCE....that's it. I saw this not because I am trying to sound bad ass, but it is because of safety issues. Like I said, most men can overpower a women....so no trust, no men. Ok....I HAVE to say this.....My compound would be heavily "booby trapped"

All a woman has to do is paint her toenails,wear thigh-high
stockings and wear 5" heels.At least 50% of the men would
be tripping over their tongues and slobbering over their monitors.
Men can be so pathetic at times,have their uses,but still pathetic.*

I like the idea of a woman having her own "escorts". I am a happily,
married lady.I can shoot,cook,bake,sew,can food and not above
hand washing clothes in galvanized tubs.

*Age,gravity and weight has forced me to get rid of my heel collection.

Two images come to mind post-apocolyptic. The first is of females thriving because there are a good number of us who can make healthy babies, are good in bed, can work hard...blah blah blah. But the second image I clearly see are of the females that need those $400.00 aligator stilettos with matching purse. The chicks that gag when they see raw meat but clearly want the cheeseburger no pickles. See where I am going with this? I have never been more afraid for the future of my gender than when I think of a SHTF senario. Does anyone else share my concern? I mean, these chics will be more vulnerable than the elderly,children, mentally ill, diseased etc. Like, OMG right? hehe.

Make no mistake, if SHTF, I would not be the pretty, friendly and sweet woman that people know me as.

As a woman or women surviving as a group, the initial priority after food, water and shelter would be to avoid dangerous situations involving men. A big priority would be to avoid rape and pregnancy at all costs, in a SHTF situation, during the initial years, raising a child would be not only extremely difficult when food is scarce etc, but also very dangerous, and you would become a much easier target.

So learning how to defend youself from rape would be VERY important for all single women to learn. Learn martial arts, learn how to use Sais, staffs, knives or sticks. Guns, swords etc are flashy and convenient for a limited time, but won't serve your purpose long term, unless you have a endless supply of bullets.

Archery is also a valuable skill, both for hunting and defense.

Now more than ever, women need to learn how to look after themselves and not rely on a man to 'protect' them. Women are very capable, strong, very wise and intuitive, traits which will help in a survival situation if used the right way. Women will form strong and protective communities, the larger the better. Loyalty and trust of each other would make a strong foundation for a lasting and successful tribe. An all women tribe would do incredibly well in a survival scenario, and should not be underestimated.

Killing is something I would never ever want to do (but I would in a second if it was a life or death situation) I would not hesitate to puncture your testicles, pop your eyeballs out or beat you senseless if the need arises during a SHTF scenario.

You have been warned LOL

For real girl. Come on. I'm from the north east hunt, fish, boat, camp, hike and survivalist. We are not insulting you but most women are clue less (fact). You my dear are a freak of nature or a diamond in the rough. A prize if you will and every guys dream girl so please don't feel insulted as I for one am far from insulting you. You are a dream girl. Now all you need is a nice easy going personality and have a good relationship with your mum and the stars are aligned you know what I mean.

You should be poud and not be on the defense but on the offense.

On the prowl like a lioness.

That's so right, but there are another 50% who are smart, hard working and good. Those are the ones who I might allow in my compound....but like I said.....they must prove themselves. In times like that, trust would be imperative....female OR male. Loyalty is hard to come by today, so I would be very selective in who I allow to stay with me.

Which is how society got the way it already is.

I think you're wrong there, in a survival situation things would be very different. We would not be choosing men based on their looks, status, wealth or reputation... Choosing a male would be based on their ethics, skills and what they could contribute to the community. Many all women tribes would choose not to reproduce, but rather to take in women and children on a regular basis to preserve and sustain their lives and the life of the tribe.

I find this post offensive because if "SHTF" I'd be more than capable of defending and supporting myself. But, I do understand that most women would probably freak the # out. That being said.... Most men adore saving a damsel in distress so I think atleast the pretty girls will be fine. If SHTF both men and women alike need a game plan, wether they're a lone ranger or are in need of some type of support group.

I'm curious as to what most of y'all are going to do.

This kinda makes me want to research Matriarchal societies. I could see myself heading up one of those!
