This paper analyzes the role of behavior in the sexes using Gilmore's study of the Tahitians and Senai peoples as examples of gender roles and sex characteristics.
From the Paper:"In the last thirty years, Feminist and Anthropological theory has shifted the role of men and women in cultures towards a more gender-oriented approach. This paper will briefly identify the biological work of sexual difference and its recent implications and go beyond rough western scientism in order to survey the range of cultural roles of sex and gender in non-western societies and how this has been incorporated and explained in a wider debate.
