Sex Ratios and Women's Roles: A Cross-National Analysis.
South, Scott J.; Trent, Katherine
American Journal of Sociology, v93 n5 p1096-1115 Mar 1988
Tests several hypotheses derived from the Guttentag-Secord theory which relates societal-level sex ratios to women's status and roles. Finds that the effects of sex ratio on women's roles are more pronounced in developed countries but that correlations between sex ratio and certain dimensions of women's roles provide little support for the theory.
