Zoom ahead again, and we’re in the era of power suits and shoulder pads. Alpha women are now climbing corporate ladders and making boardroom waves. They’ve traded in the saber-tooth tigers for stock market tigers, and they’re not afraid to roar.

Now, in the age of smartphones and social media, the alpha woman has evolved yet again. She’s juggling careers, relationships, and Instagram accounts with finesse. She’s mastering the art of multitasking, whether she’s negotiating deals or debating which filter best complements her latest selfie. 

From battling mammoths to mastering hashtags, the alpha woman’s journey through time has been nothing short of awe-inspiring.
