Gender Relations and Social Structures.

13871. Gender Relations and Social Structures.

An analysis in cultural anthropology which explores the relationship between the gender relations of a society and its economic organization, considering if there is a typical style corresponding to traditional versus modern societies. Examples for analysis are drawn from the Kung, Inuit, Navajo, Neur, and Divaru peoples along with others. Concludes that while there is a crude and inconsistent tendency for the relative equality between the sexes to be positively correlated with relative equality in gender-based economic contributions, these tendencies are heavily influenced by cultural beliefs and historical factors. 10 pages, 18 footnotes, 3 bibliographic references.
