Gender Related Social Groups

Historically, men participated in a separate group or club, where men would socialize, though men's clubs are no longer formed (Barton, 1930/1978). Peer groups, referred to as barkadas, are often sex specific. Residence for married couples is usually ambilocal, with a couple living in the community of either the husband's or the wife's family. Recently increasing rates of out-migration due to population growth and limited employment opportunities has altered this pattern of residence. Most agricultural work is carried out in sex-specific groups, as are some other types of work (i.e., drivers and mechanics are male, and midwives are female). Some Christian religious groups are sex specific. Most other aspects of Ifugao social structure are not male or female oriented.
