Relative Status of Men and Women

Status refers to the value attached to men and women by society as well as differential authority, rights, and privileges. Since formal positions in the public arena are described in previous sections, this section focuses on other aspects. Are there substantial differences in decision-making and influence for men and women in subsistence and economy, family matters, community, kin group, and religion? Do men and women have different rights to important resources and do they control the fruits of their labor? Do males and females control or influence their sexuality, education, marriage choice, divorce choice, etc.? Do males or females obtain special privileges (such as deference)? Do these change over the life cycle?
