Who were the women of prehistory? What was their daily life like? For 150 years, researchers have underestimated their role, interpreting discoveries with the preconceptions of their time. Paleolithic women became prisoners of clichés. Today, a new generation of researchers, many of them women, is overturning this model. By meeting scientists on excavation sites or in their laboratories, a new portrait of these women emerges: hunters, artists and even clan leaders.
