- Wendy Wood A cross-cultural analysis of the behavior of women and men: Implications for the origins of sex differences.
Wood, Wendy; Eagly, Alice H. Psychological Bulletin, Vol 128(5), Sep 2002, 699-727. doi: 10.1037/0033-2909.128.5.699
- Abstract (the most direct challenge to evolutionary psychology)
This article evaluates theories of the origins of sex differences in human behavior. It reviews the cross-cultural evidence on the behavior of women and men in nonindustrial societies, especially the activities that contribute to the sex-typed division of labor and patriarchy. To explain the cross-cultural findings, the authors consider social constructionism, evolutionary psychology, and their own biosocial theory. Supporting the biosocial analysis, sex differences derive from the interaction between the physical specialization of the sexes, especially female reproductive capacity, and the economic and social structural aspects of societies. This biosocial approach treats the psychological attributes of women and men as emergent given the evolved characteristics of the sexes, their developmental experiences, and their situated activity in society.

- Quote: p708:
"In general, the cross-cultural research comparing more and less complex societies provided the most direct challenge to evolutionary psychology theorizing about evolved dispositions that correspond to sexual selection pressures on human ancestors. Such dispositions appear to be more characteristic of men and women in societies with advanced economies and technology than in simpler societies. In particular, a division of labor in which men serve as the primary resource providers for their families and women seek resource provision from men is characteristic of agricultural and industrial societies, but among foragers more variable subsistence patterns emerged. Also, even though modern societies tend to be patriarchal, evidence for patriarchy is less uniform among foraging societies, as is evidence for intergroup violence. Furthermore, male sexual jealousy and male control over female sexuality have emerged with particular economic structures, especially those in which inheritance rules run through male lines. All of these patterns are consistent with the possibility that evolutionary psychologists have reasoned from modern social conditions and inadvertently applied these to their understanding of the evolved dispositions of men and women.
