These women were mentioned as related to Skanda and were called devourers of infants during the time of pregnancy. This points to an ancient native religion which invented these stories to explain infant mortality, especially during pregnancy. This also points to the fact that such matriarchical cultures which are now seen in southern India with inclination towards worship of the Goddess, were prevalent in northern regions with same intensity and that it was a cultural continuum spreading through out India including Tibet, where the Stri-rajya also is located.
