Why the males are not always in charge and why gender roles are weighted very differently in mammals: In Fearless Females, renowned author Mario Ludwig, "Germany's expert on all things animal" and "the Peter Wohlleben for animals", tells exciting, spectacular and bizarre stories that shed light on female leadership roles in the animal kingdom.
Nature is full of strong females. They often don't get as much attention as their male counterparts, but they play the most important roles in animal societies. They are fearsome hunters and leaders. They are mothers and teachers, passing on the genes and knowledge that is important for the survival of the family. They have the power of choice and drive sexual selection, as they are the ones who choose the best males to mate with - with even some species not needing males at all to reproduce.
