Summary
Comparison of Hart and Pillings findings among the Tiwi with those of Goodale; further information from own work with Andagarinja, Jangkundjara and Pidjanjara women in 1966-67-68; postulates idea of women as junior partner and examines rights and duties in marriage (provision of food, adultery, wife lending), rights over children (discipline, initiation, marriage), community life, leadership in ritual (cooperation in male rituals, lesser interest of men in female rites); quotes Meggitt on the Walbiri and Sharp on the Yir Yiront; comparison of Tiwi, Karadjeri and Wikmunkan myths showing status of women; contrasts ritual and mythology of arid zone tribes (Walbiri) with those of fertile coastal area (Tiwi) showing bias towards preserving superior status of men; exclusion of women from male rites examined in the light of reported ignorance of physiological paternity; role of women in physical procreation and birth, role of men in spiritual rebirth at initiation; acceptance of junior status by women and reinforcement of male superiority by men
