Michigan Study: Women’s Rights are Good for Men’s Health

Gender differences in mortality rates are higher in more patriarchal societies, a Michigan study found. The research, published in the American Psychological Association’s Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences, used sociodemographic and mortality data from the World Health Organization to study death rates for males and females. Dr. Daniel Kruger, research assistant professor at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, led the study.
