|Okay, so why do hunting and meat have higher status?|
Because hunting and attaining meat is generally more risky than gathering, requires skills that usually require more practice and teaching, and had a low enough success rate that those who were successful were often celebrated.
I don't know about being more risky. An unarmed woman is at a greater risk from a predator than a group of armed men.
