Relative Status of Men and Women

The intrinsic imperfection of female nature limits drastically the degrees of freedom and autonomy to which she may even hope to aspire. These are further limited in practice by many patterns of social organization, such as residence which is generally patrilocal.

This negation is also linked to notions and norms of shyness and modesty, which are far more rigid for women than for men. These notions also play a role in defining women through men, as is evident, for example, from the markers that distinguish women, though not men, who are engaged or married.
