Animal Queendom (25) More files...
A study published by researchers at Mills College in The Leadership Quarterly highlights female-biased influence which is pervasive in killer whales, lions, spotted hyenas, bonobos, lemurs, and elephants. In these species leaders emerge without coercion and followers benefit from the social support and ecological knowledge from elder females. The collective wisdom of the matriarchs assist the group in collective movements, foraging, conflict resolution within the group and with other populations. Cheers to the animal queendom!
