Gender Related Social Groups

Most social groups are gender specific, for the separation of the sexes is a common practice, and people feel most comfortable with others of the same sex. This organizing principle extends to children's playgroups, school sports, and social activities, the division of agricultural, artisan, and domestic labor, reciprocal labor groups, religious groups, community and development activists, and political organizations. Kin groups are formed through patrilines. Married couples live with or near the husband's family, and also near the wife's if they are from the same village; some variability is found among ethnic minority groups. Some ethnic minorities such as the Newars have strong matrilineal ties, even though inheritance is through males.
