  1. Wivespower and wives’ proportionate contribution to subsistence will be negatively associated with cultural complexity (31-2).Lee, Gary R. - Conjugal power and spousal resources in patriarchal cultures, 1983 - 3 Variables

    This article reviews theories of marital power and tests for a relationship between wivescontribution to subsistence and their conjugal power in patriarchal cultures.

  2. Women’s power in marriage will be associated with nuclear rather than extended family organization (124).Warner, Rebecca L. - Social organization, spousal resources, and marital power: a cross-cultural ..., 1986 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the effect of family structural complexity, residence and descent system, and female contribution to subsistence on women's power in marriage. Results suggest that wives have more power in marriage where there is nuclear family organization and matrilocality. The authors suggest that resource theory should broaden its conception of valued resources to include dimensions such as family organization patterns.

  3. Female contribution to subsistence will be positively associated with polygyny (p. 702).Lee, Gary R. - Marital structure and economic systems, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This article tests a broad hypothesis that marital structure is associated with economic type. Results indicate that where women's potential contribution to subsistence is high (as in gathering and agricultural societies), women's contribution is positively associated with polygyny. By contrast, in fishing, hunting, and herding societies, female contribution to subsistence is generally minimal and has a negative association with polygyny.

  9. Because potters rely on their craft for subsistence rather than relying on agriculture, horticulture, pastoralism, hunting, or fishing, the odds that potters are exclusively or predominantly female will decrease (235)Byrne, Bryan - Access to subsistence resources and the sexual division of labor among potters, 1994 - 2 Variables

    The author tests a theory that the gender division of labor among potters is determined by the degree that pottery functions as a form of subsistence. A logistic regression analysis of the variables are presented and coding for gender of potter and access to resources are included.
