You know them; you've seen them; maybe you're even one of them. All the gossip, trash talk and slut shaming nearly every woman has grown up with? It actually has a reproductive purpose. The same kinds of female disses take place across our entire species around the world and have been from the beginning of time. But the truly tricky part is that women actually need each other...badly! From the early days of our species’ evolution, it was a circle of women practicing co-operative parenting who really kept the tribe together. They shared food, protection, emotional support, babysitting duties, and sometimes even men. But, to this day, we never share one of those without a fight.

Hot Tip: When you call, try to find a quiet place with a good connection just in case we want to use your contribution; use your ear buds, the microphone sounds pretty darn good.
