Dominating versus eliminating the competition: Sex differences in human intrasexual aggression

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (3-4):268-269 (2009)
Abstract
Archer presents a traditional view of intrasexual competition. Knowledge of a species' social structure provides a more complete picture. Human males compete against individuals with whom they may cooperate later in inter-group aggression. By contrast, females compete against individuals for a mate's continued support. Females' aggression may aim at eliminating the competition, whereas males simply may attempt to dominate others
