  1. The more that men outnumber women, the more support for veiling (489)Pazhoohi, Farid - Sex Difference on the Importance of Veiling: A Cross-Cultural Investigation, 2020 - 2 Variables

    In this article, the authors seek to test the theory that the veiling of women is a form of male mate guarding strategy, especially in harsh environments (specifically those with poor health and high mortality). They test this hypothesis using survey data drawn from 25 majority Muslim countries. This theory found support in the results of their statistical tests. In addition to testing the hypotheses articulated in the paper (as noted above), they also ran correlations between income level, importance of religion, and a countries sex ratio and views on the importance of veiling.

  4. Kinship tightness will be positively correlated with pathogen stress (malaria stability).Enke, Benjamin - Kinship, Cooperation, and the Evolution of Moral Systems, 2019 - 2 Variables

    In this paper, the author argues that moral systems evolved as a way to enforce cooperation between people outside of kin groups. Because cooperation within kin groups has apparent adaptive advantages, it is argued that these moral systems will be less important for societies with tight kin groups and conversely more important for those with looser kin groups. In order to test this theory, the author creates an original model that incorporates both ethnographic data and data from contemporary countries. Thus, it is postulated that historical kinship practices will influence contemporary systems. The paper concludes that there is sufficient historical evidence for this theory.

  6. Men’s huts/ceremonial houses/clubhouses are negatively related to women’s power in kinship networks. (77)Spain, Daphne - Gendered Space, 1992 - 2 Variables

    In this study, the author examines how gender-segregated space may affect the status of women in nonindustrial societies. Specifically, the author examines predictors of women's status in kinship, inheritance, and labor. The author argues that the gendered partitioning of space contributes to the subordination of women cross-culturally because these practices limit women's access to information which men use to gain status.

  8. Embeddedness will be positively associated with traditional views on gender roles (403)Lomazzi, Vera - Gender Role Attitudes in the International Social Survey Programme: Cross-Na..., 2020 - 2 Variables

    This study seeks to investigate the association between gender role attitudes and cultural values of embeddedness, hierarchy, and egalitarianism. After establishing approximate measurement equivalence, the authors ran correlations on data from 36 countries included in the latest edition of the International Social Survey Programme carried out in 2012. Results suggest that embeddedness and hierarchy are positively related to traditional gender role attitudes and egalitarianism is negatively related to traditional gender role attitudes.
