Relative Status of Men and Women

Men and women enjoy similar social positions in Timpaus Banggai society. However, there is a tendency for men to be more authoritarian toward female household members when there are visitors in the house. The tasks carried out by men and women are equally ranked and generally deemed equally important.

Differences in status positions are less related to gender identity than to economic affluence. Despite an absence of Banggai traditional social hierarchy, some households are richer than the rest. Further, some islanders, such as the village headman and the members of his household, appear to copy the lifestyle appropriate for nobles on Banggai island. Thus women and men in such positions tend to do less physical work than the rest and also to order other villagers to do them favors.
