Abstract:

"The assumption of universal male dominance is called into question in Sexual Stratification, which presents empirical evidence for its absence. These fourteen original papers, plus an introduction and overview by the author, are case studies that include societies where male dominance predominates, such as Sicily, through societies in which dominance is qualified, such as Yuruba, to more egalitarian societies, such as the Bontoc and the Israeli kibbutz. Stratification is examined empirically in both traditional and modern societies and theoretically in terms of power and autonomy in economic and social structures. In addition, an assessment is made of the role ideology plays in establishing norms for sex roles and statuses."--Jacket.
