Sapiens - Better explanation(s) for male dominance in power roles

Unread post

In the chapter called "What's so good about men?", Harari visits some traditional explanations for the quasi exclusivity of men in roles of power in most cultures.
He finishes without considering any explanation as convincing.
I was wondering if, since the book was published, anyone came with better explanations.
Thanks

Although you posted this question in the BookTalk discussion of the book, I don't see a chapter titled "What's so good about men?" Dunno what's going on here...
