The role of polygyny in the enslavement of women

Polygyny will have to be practiced to ensure that every woman has a man who is qualified to lead her. A lack of polygyny is arguably a major reason why feminism took root: women looked around at the men who were available to them under monogamy, and said, "I don't want to be led by these." Women's hypergamous nature led them to (1) participate in polygynous relationships outside of marriage, since that was the only way in which it was possible to have a quality man, given that the law wouldn't recognize polygynous marriage; or (2) demand equality (read: dominance) in their marriages, since they didn't respect their husband enough to follow his lead.
