 The history of the teaching of human female inferiority in Darwinism
Sexual selection was at the core of evolution, and female inferiority was its major proof and its chief witness.  Darwin concluded that males were like animal breeders, shaping women to their liking by sexual selection.
Vogt argued that ‘the child, the female, and the senile White’ all had the intellectual features and personality of the ‘grown up Negro,’ and that in intellect and personality the female was similar to both infants and the ‘lower’ races.
One approach seized upon, to scientifically demonstrate that females were generally inferior to males, was to prove that their brain capacity was smaller.  Researchers first endeavoured to demonstrate smaller female cranial capacity by skull measurements, and then tried to prove that brain capacity was causally related to intelligence—a far more difficult task.
