The cross-cultural consistency of gendered war roles is set against a backdrop of great diversity of both gender roles and war considered separately. Human beings have many forms of marriage, sexuality, division of labor in household and child-care work, ownership of property, and lines of descent. Overall, human societies have organized gender roles outside war "in an almost infinite variety of ways..." (Sanday, 1981, p. 1). Similarly, forms of war vary greatly, except for their gendered character. Different cultures fight in very different ways, and for different purposes. Thus, the connection of war with gender is more stable, across cultures and through time, than are either gender roles outside war or the forms and frequency of war (Goldstein, 2001, pp. 6-9).
