  3. Violence against women will be positively associated with frequency of overall warfare. (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).

  5. In hunting and gathering societies, adultery/extramarital relations are generally punished (407)Apostolou, Menelaos - Sexual selection under parental choice: the role of parents in the evolution..., 2007 - 2 Variables

    This study reveals that in hunting and gathering societies thought to be akin to those of our ancestors, female choice is constained by the control that parents exercise over their daughters. Since parental control is the typical pattern of mate choice among extant foragers, it is likely that this pattern was also prevalent throughout human evolution.

  9. Cultural complexity will be positively related to restrictive extramarital sex norms (187).Broude, Gwen J. - Extramarital sex norms in cross-cultural perspective, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the double standard regarding extramarital norms for men and women in relation to other sociocultural factors. Results suggest that a double standard is significantly related to post-partum sex taboos, hypermasculinity, and father absence.
