There’s a lot of circular logic in this kind of thinking–what is really a kind of evolutionary functionalism. The steps are to take a contemporary phenomenon (say, workplace gender relations) and then reverse engineer an evolutionary story that fits the phenomenon. As long as it’s a tight-fitting story–the evolutionary logic seems right–there doesn’t seem to be any need for real evidence.
