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

  • David M. Buss (a1) and Joshua Duntley (a1)
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.
