Ever since I learned about the existence of secret societies when I was younger, I've always wondered why there are far more secret societies composed
strictly of men- far more so than their female counterparts.
Most of the world's societies have historically been patriarchal in nature, which I'm sure plays some role in the variation between the numbers, but
is that the only variable contributing to this disparity?
Are there any prominent female secret sisterhoods that are NOT an auxiliary offshoot of an established male group?
Why do you think there's a large discrepancy in the numbers between male and female secret societies?
(Or are they just better at being a "secret" society?
Please share your thoughts, ATSers!
I'm looking forward to reading your insights.
