Male dominance hierarchies and women's intrasexual competition

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (2):235-236 (1999)
Abstract
In their competition for higher-status men, women with higher socioeconomic status use indirect forms of aggression (ridicule and gossip) to derogate lower-status female competitors and the men who date them. Women's greater tendency to excuse their aggression is arguably a cultural enhancement of an evolutionarily based sex difference and not solely a cultural construction imposed by patriarchy.
