Sanctions regarding illegitimacy are negatively associated with female economic and political power (108).
Relationship remained insignificant when testing against Sanday's, Whyte's, and Ross's scales of sexual inequality. However, in both societies with small community size and those which aggregate kinsmen using residential rules (i.e. patrilocal or avunculocal residence), a significant (p < 0.05) positive association emerges between female power and illegitimacy sanctions. A significant (p > 0.05) negative association occurs in societies with larger community size. Additionally, in societies with close father-child proximity, female power is significantly positively associated with stricter illegitimacy sanctions (gamma = 0.56).
