  1. There will be a positive relationship between female allies and women's resource control, political power, and prevailing attitudes about women's behavior (19).Yanca, Catherine - Female allies and female power a cross-cultural analysis, 2004 - 4 Variables

    This study tests the various ecological and social influences of women's political power and resource control in polygynous societies cross-culturally. Results suggest that women who are closer to their kin and have sisters as cowives are more likely to have resource control and power.

  2. Aggression is lower in societies where males show greater subsistence effort.Carter, Tara-Lyn - Male aggressiveness as intrasexual contest competition in a cross-cultural s..., 2018 - 5 Variables

    The present study tests the theory that intrasexual selection or male attraction may explain variation in male aggression in a sample of 78 societies. Measures of intrasexual selection include: male subsistence, male war mortality, polygyny, sex ratio, and wives variance. The authors claim support for the theory.

  3. "When women have more female allies, restrictive ideas about women's behavior should be relatively rare" (20).Yanca, Catherine - Female allies and female power a cross-cultural analysis, 2004 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the various ecological and social influences of women's political power and resource control in polygynous societies cross-culturally. Results suggest that women who are closer to their kin and have sisters as cowives are more likely to have resource control and power.

  4. "[There is an] absence of association between . . . women's contribution to subsistence and societal differentiation" (157)Evascu, Thomas L. - A holocultural study of societal organization and modes of marriage: a gene..., 1975 - 2 Variables

    The author examines modes of marriage and societal organization from a functionalist (general evolutionary) perspective. He focuses on the relationships of subsistence (economic) patterns, settlement patterns, and social complexity to predicting modes of marriage, with particular emphasis on the importance of subsistence as an underlying structural influence upon social patterns.

  5. Matrilineality and double descent will be associated with women's overt political power (70).Low, Bobbi S. - Sex, coalitions, and politics in preindustrial societies, 1992 - 3 Variables

    This article investigates possible correlates of women’s overt political power in a cross-cultural sample. Rule of descent—specifically, matrilineal or double descent— is the only factor the author found to be associated with women’s overt political power. Several other factors, including sex ratio, subsistence type, contribution to subsistence, and political system, are not associated. The author also includes a discussion of political activity among chimpanzees, as well as a brief ethnographic summary of several societies in which women have political power.

  6. Agricultural subsistence activity is associated with male contribution to subsistence (283).Martin, M. Kay - Female of the species, 1975 - 3 Variables

    This book discusses the role of women cross-culturally. The authors use a cross-cultural sample to examine the differences between men and women in contribution to subsistence as well as the social juxtaposition of the sexes in foraging, horticultural, agricultural, pastoral, and industrial societies.

  7. 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.
