Abstract

Other than childbirth, little so clearly embodies the demarcation of male and female gender roles as warfare. Men go out and fight; women mind the house and kids. Men protect their wives and children; women wait for their husbands and sons to come back, and they welcome or mourn them at battle’s end. Whether biological or social factors or both are responsible, the pattern remains, and whatever exceptions may be found only prove the rule.
