  1. Violence against women will be positively associated with high male-to-female sex ratio. (1)Stone, Emily A. - A Test of an Evolutionary Hypothesis of Violence against Women: The Case of ..., 2017 - 4 Variables

    This paper presents empirical tests of two theories put forth to explain violence toward women. The first predicts that warfare promotes socialization for aggression and legitimizes violence toward women, while the second predicts that violence works as a way to control potential for female infidelity. An association is found between high male-to-female sex ratio and violence towards women, suggesting support for the second theory over the first, which is consistent with more narrowly-focused studies by Avakame (1999), Bose et al. (2013), and D'Alessio & Stolzenberg (2010).

  2. The frequency of rape and wife beating are correlated with warfare (2).Stone, Emily A. - A Test of an Evolutionary Hypothesis of Violence Against Women: The Case of ..., 2017 - 3 Variables

    This study investigates variation in rates of violence against women, primarily interested in two main hypotheses: the Culture of Violence Hypothesis and the Functional Violence Hypothesis. Using the SCCS along with variables from Broude & Greene (1976) and Ember & Ember (1992), the study concluded that warring societies were associated with a greater intolerance of rape, contradicting the Culture of Violence Hypothesis, whereas wife beating, as well as tolerance towards rape, increased with scarcity of women, in line with the evolutionary Functional Violence Hypothesis.

  5. Frequency of warfare is negatively associated with sex ratio (2).Stone, Emily A. - A Test of an Evolutionary Hypothesis of Violence Against Women: The Case of ..., 2017 - 2 Variables

  6. Greater punishment of rape will be negatively associated with the frequency of rape (432).Otterbein, Keith F. - A cross-cultural study of rape, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This study examines two theories concerning the prevalence of rape: deterrence theory and fraternal interest group theory. Results indicate that both punishment and fraternal interest groups influence the frequency of rape, though neither variable is a necessary cause. The effects of marital residence and polygyny are also considered.

  9. Intergroup and interpersonal violence will be associated with male sexual violence (22).Sanday, Peggy Reeves - The socio-cultural context of rape: a cross-cultural study, 1981 - 2 Variables

    This article offers an analysis of the rape of women cross-culturally, positing that rape is present under certain cultural circumstances. The author tests for correlations between rape and aspects of sexual repression, group violence, childrearing, and ideologies of male dominance. There are significant associations between male sexual violence and other types of violence, as well as between rape and ideologies of male dominance.
