  1. Women look forward to different things after the pandemic in masculine and feminine cultures.Vollman, Manja - Stresses of COVID-19 and Expectations for the Future Among Women: A Cross Cu..., 2023 - 2 Variables

    The study explored the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women's stressful experiences and future expectations, and whether it is associated with cultural femininity/masculinity. The study involved 1218 women from 15 countries, and the findings showed that women from masculine cultures more often expressed disorientation, while women from feminine cultures more often wrote about negative emotions. Additionally, women from masculine cultures had more future expectations regarding daily activities, while women from feminine cultures had more expectations regarding social activities, work and economic revival, and universal social issues. The pandemic seems to confront women in both types of culture with similar challenges. Overall, increased societal participation and responsibilities of women in feminine cultures were associated with negative affect during the pandemic, but they also propelled plentiful expectations for the future "after COVID-19".

  2. Men's support for veiling will be positively correlated with environmental harshness (487)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.

  3. There will be a “substantial difference in deference behavior directed towards the elderly according to their sex” (104).Silverman, Philip - How do I respect thee? let me count the ways: deference towards elderly men ..., 1978 - 2 Variables

    This article describes categories of deference toward elderly men and women. The authors test for significant differences in the types of deference elderly men and women enjoy, finding that men experience more victual and linguistic deference. Elderly women enjoy more service deference than men, but the difference is not significant.

  4. Intimate partner violence, and the acceptance of it, will be correlated with women working outside the home.Alesina, Alberto - Violence Against Women: A Cross-cultural Analysis for Africa, 2021 - 2 Variables

    The authors of this study investigate both intimate partner violence (IPV) in Africa and tolerance towards it. Merging Demographic and Health Survey data with information from the Ethnographic Atlas, they take into account a wide range of ancestral characteristics that could influence domestic violence today, including precolonial economic roles and marriage traditions. Their findings indicate that societies in which men were dominant in subsistence and/or had androcentric marital practices have more IPV today, and more acceptance of it. They also find an interesting gender gap in acceptance of IPV, in which women are more likely than men to justify domestic violence.

  5. High frequency of resource stress will be negatively associated with female status among hunter-gatherers (455)Hayden, Brian - Ecological determinants of women's status among hunter/gatherers, 1986 - 2 Variables

    A materialist approach is used to study the status of women in hunter-gatherer groups. Techno-ecological factors are tested as predictors of women's status.

  6. "Where the mother (or women in general) serves as primary caretaker in infancy, males will display masculine protest behavior in adulthood, regardless of the status of women in the larger social context (164).Broude, Gwen J. - Revisiting status-envy: does the theory hold up?, 1989 - 3 Variables

    Author first tests the validity of the variables traditionallyused in tests of status envy theory. Then the author tests some of the implications of the theory and proposes somewhat different mechanisms.

  7. As women's physiological parenting costs decrease, women's sexual unrestrictedness increases.Pirlott, Angela G. - Cross-Cultural Evidence for the Role of Parenting Costs Limiting Women’s Sex..., 2023 - 2 Variables

    Humans, just like other mammals, tend to allow greater sexual freedom for men rather than women. Furthermore, females are burdened with the majority of parenting. Do parenting costs limit sexual unrestrictedness to a different degree for males and females? The authors find that across 48 cultures, as women’s parenting costs decreased through improved physiological and economic conditions, women’s sexual unrestrictedness increased.
