Ethnographic records of nonindustrialized s o c i e t i e s show that although most subsistence a c t i v i t i e s are performed by both sexes, some are performed usually or exclusively by only one sex (Murdock and Provost, 1973:206-207). Brown (1970:1074) suggests that i n primitive settings the degree to which women p a r t i c i p a t e i n subsistence a c t i v i t i e s depends upon the compatibility of the l a t t e r with simultaneous child-care r e s p o n s i b i l i t i e s . Women are most l i k e l y to make a substantial contribution when sub-sistence a c t i v i t i e s have the following c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s : the p a r t i c i p a n t i s not obliged to be far from home; the tasks are r e l a t i v e l y monotonous and do not require rapt concentration; and the work i s not dangerous, can be per-formed i n spite of interruptions, and i s e a s i l y resumed once interrupted. Conversely, Murdock and Provost -(1973:21) note that periods of absence from the household are required by such t y p i c a l l y masculine a c t i v i t i e s as warfare, hunting, f i s h i n g , and herding. These and other masculine tasks usually have features which give a r e l a t i v e advantage to males, who "tend i n general to be endowed with greater physical strength than females and probably also a superior capacity for mobilizing i t i n b r i e f spurts of excessive energy." Even i n nonindustrialized settings, however, tasks per-formed by men i n one society are undertaken by women i n another. 1 2 The b i o l o g i c a l f a c t o r , t h e n , i s n o t s u f f i c i e n t t o e x p l a i n t h e s e x u a l a l l o c a t i o n o f s u b s i s t e n c e t a s k s .
