Abstract

Regarding hogs and dogs, the active women and leaders in the three domesticatoires action areas such as food, protection and movement controls and finally reproduction. However, at the level of use, a gender break there is at two levels: (1) in the exploitation of the living animal, (2) the killing of the animal. This cut is to be compared with the own sub-equipment domestication -where the tools are few and simple polyfonctionnels- reflected in the work of women in general. If one understands well the stakes of the concept of sexual division of labor and that, following Levi-Strauss, It is proposed to rename it prohibition of tasks, it is discovered that the activities prohibited to women are discovered according to the degree of technicity of the tools and that the techniques specifically feminine and domesticatory overlap. Moreover, women's actions appear more persuasive than repressive. This is one of the characteristics of their place in domestication. This is why it seems more accurate to speak of a feminine part of domestication rather than of a domestication of females, strictly speaking Moreover, women's actions appear more persuasive than repressive.
