Sex differences in mate preferences are no smaller in more gender-equal nations, contrary to the idea that these differences are a product of socially-imposed gender roles.
Our lab’s new paper (with #opendata and #estate code, led by , with and me) is out now in . We find little evidence that country-level gender inequality is linked to mate-preference sex differences.
We recently replicated it in this paper too (but found little evidence that the size of the sex differences was related to country-level measures of gender inequality)
