Teach a man to fish

Should you squeeze the toothpaste tube in the middle or from the end?

Lol...I was going down a different path with that in my head before I clicked on it. More of an incompetent storyline.

Yes, but teaching a woman to fish is the best known way to lower the human birth rate while simultaneously promoting survival of individual children. Perhaps the men can be taught to focus their energies on festive ribbon embroidery of codpieces.

I thought it was "Give a man a fire, and he'll be warm for the evening. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life."

All true, but not teaching men to fish means you get war.

There can be contests with trophies that will determine who did the best job of ribbon embroidery. Like peacocks.

If the trophies (and ribbons?) helped attract the women, sounds good

That would be somewhat helpful in blunting the war response. Might need to toss in some type of physical competition that would give the winners of it special rights in selecting ribbon colors, etc. Preferably a physical competition that has some form of violence. And, as C40 noted, it wouldn't hurt to have some women fawning over the competitors. Obviously, they would need to be scantily clad.

The women or the competitors?

Why not both? That's similar to the way it is now anyway.
