Subject: Evolutionary Theory

I am working on an honours thesis on essentialism/anti-essentialism
debates within feminism, especially as they concern (physiological,
psychological and social experiences of) motherhood.  While it is
perhaps not directly related to my thesis, in the course of my (not
particularly feminist) readings about mother-child bonding, etc. I am
discovering an implicit use of evolutionary theory.  I am just wondering

if anyone out there knows of any feminist critiques of Darwin's theory
of evolution, or evolutionary theories in general, and about thier
relationship to feminism? Any other suggestions would also be greatly
Thank you,
