Kruger finds larger gender gaps in mortality rates in highly patriarchal societies

"Women's rights are good for men's health" - PhysOrg.com. 02/06/2014.

Daniel Kruger and colleagues looked at male-female mortality rates across societies with varying levels of gender equality. They found that males in highly patriarchal societies had higher mortality rates relative to women than in societies with more gender equality. "Gender inequality is inherently related to inequality in general, and this is bad for both men and women's health, though especially harmful to men in increasing the risk of death," Kruger said.
