  1. Cold climates (high latitude) will tend to be associated with relatively fat standards of beauty and warm climates (low latitude) will tend to be associated with relatively thin standards of beauty (202,215).Anderson, Judith L. - Was the Duchess of Windsor right?: A cross-cultural review of the socioecolo..., 1992 - 2 Variables

    Cultures vary widely in regards to beauty standards for female body fat: while industrialized nations typically prefer thinness in women, ethnographic reports indicate that plumpness is valued in many small-scale societies. Here the authors evaluate several hypotheses that relate variation in female body fat preference to variation in socioecology such as food storage, climate, male social dominance, valuation and restriction of women's work, and female stress during adolescence.

  7. "If one limits the definition of male initiation rites to only those ceremonies characterized by both a genital operation and seclusion, a very strong relationship emerges between these male rites and those female initiation ceremonies which [cause pain to initiate]" (845)Brown, Judith K. - A cross-cultural study of female initiation rites, 1963 - 2 Variables

    This article discusses initiation rites for girls. Specifically explored are the reasons why the ceremonies are observed in some societies and omitted in others and what the variations between societies demonstrates.

  10. Type of game women hunt is variable in hunter-gatherer communities.Anderson, Abigail - The Myth of Man the Hunter: Women’s contribution to the hunt across ethnogra..., 2023 - 1 Variables

    After noticing that recent archaeological research has found evidence that women in pre-history were probably hunters, the authors use the ethnographic record from 63 foraging populations to explore the role of women in hunting. They explore what proportion of societies expect women to contribute to hunting, if women hunt, what proportion was opportunistic or intentional, whether women hunters were skilled, and whether women hunted with children.
