Plausible and interesting. Here, however, is a plausible alternative to the female part: Assuming, as most in this field do, that reproduction is a driving goal for both genders, and that "warrior" traits were part of what made a prospective male attractive to a female, women probably were smart enough to figure out that actual war was a good way to lose all the "best" males. Cf, The Lysistrata, The Trojan Women, etc.

Men of course tend and probably always tended to be testosterone-driven. So . . .

. . . Thank God, human evolution is heavily affected by cultural influences, anyway. That may even be the only way our species still evolves. (If it does.)
