Female of the Species is an attempt to use the approach
of traditional anthropology in the examination of the position of
women at the species level. While Martin and Voorhies recognize
that there are fundamental differences between men and women that
stem from basic biological differences, they are committed to the
proposition that culture rather than biology plays the more
critical role in determining those features of behavior which
ultimately dichotomize the sexes. Female of the Species
takes a step towards quantifying and understanding these cultural
differences by looking at the changing roles women have played in
society over time.
