In the reproduction lecture is was interesting to see the differences in gender for many of the slides. Such as on the slide about long-term mate selection, females look for mates that will increase survival of their offspring, while males look for a mate to produce many offspring. What interested me was the structural powerless hypothesis, stating that women look for a mate with good financial resources. I definitely see this in the real world even when I watch some reality shows women often marry into a man with high authority or money. Although I do feel that some women are able to make it on their own, not every woman looks to a man for income there are many successful women out there and make a living on their own.
