Resum

The explanation for prehistoric hunter-gatherer societies is based on inferential and analogical processes which refer to the modern hunter-gatherer societies. But any society studied by ethnography was primitive and much less prehistoric. On the specific point in history we look at these societies, they are organized with relationships that come from long historical trajectories. From this reflection and the analysis of the archaeological and ethnographic record of the societies in Tierra del Fuego and the Northwest Coast of America, which have been the extreme paradigms for hunter gatherer societies, we postulate that the universal division of labor by sex, inequality and discrimination against women were the historical consequences of the management of reproductive strategies to control the demographic variable. Therefore we place the origin of these strategies in prehistory and try to generate an archaeological record that allows.
