The evolutionary psychology of patriarchy: Women are not passive pawns in men's game

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (2):219-220 (1999)
Abstract
We applaud Campbell's cogent arguments for the evolution of female survival mechanisms but take issue with several key conceptual claims: the treatment of patriarchy; the implicit assumption that women are passive pawns in a male game of media exploitation; and the neglect of the possibility that media images exploit existing evolved psychological mechanisms rather than create them.
