Research ideas from Alice Evans

What Don’t We Know About Patriarchy?

Are you scrambling for research ideas? Below I outline some important questions, which existing research cannot answer

1.    Do joint families curtail men’s alcohol abuse and wife-beating?

2.    Do male-majority workplaces suppress female employment?

3.    Can gender quotas in male-majority workplaces reduce sexism?

4.    Why is the American Southeast so patriarchal?

5.    Does rule of law reduce brutish masculinity?

6.    Did Christianity curb Norse polygamy?

7.    Why are there so few female leaders in West Africa?

8.    When does religious diversity tighten patriarchal controls?

9.    Why is female employment so high among British Indians, but not British Pakistani or Bangladeshis?

And here is Alice Evans on Twitter.
