Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This paper deals with sexual antagonism in a sexually egalitarian society, the Hopi, but the sexual antagonism it deals with is not general, as between the sexes, but more specific, inherent in two kinds of male-female dyadic relationships -- husband-wife and brother-sister -- in the context of the central institution of the household. In this study Schlegel examines the cultural content that expresses this antagonism -- joking relations, patterned castration threats, adultery, and witchcraft beliefs -- which arises out of a contradiction in household structure and organization (p. 125).
