Ordinary Violence Ordinary Violence: Everyday Assaults against Women Worldwide - links forms of violence against women worldwide, drawing parallels between wife battery, honor crimes, female genital mutilation and sexual assault by placing these assaults in a structural/cultural context. Written by our own Mary Stewart, Ph.D. and available at Amazon.com.


Biases in the perception of Barack Obama’ skin tone Biases in the perception of Barack Obama’ skin tone. Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy - White Americans higher in prejudice were less likely to vote for Barack Obama than other Americans. Recent research also demonstrated that supporters and opponents of Mr. Obama engaged in skin tone biases, i.e., they perceive Mr. Obama’s skin tone as lighter or darker in line with more positive or negative views of him. Across two studies we hypothesized that skin tone biases occur as a function of two independent sources: racial prejudice, which is always related to skin tone bias, and political partisanship, which is related to skin tone bias primarily during elections. Written by our own Markus Kemmelmeier, Ph.D..


Untreated depression contributes to higher suicide rates in U.S. honor cultures. Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology Untreated depression contributes to higher suicide rates in U.S. honor cultures. Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology - Osterman and Brown demonstrated that U.S. honor states had higher rates of suicide than nonhonor states and related this phenomenon to the higher incidence of depression and a reduced readiness to seek antidepression treatment in honor states. The present study critiques their research and re-examines the origin of the association between honor culture and suicide using a more expansive multi-year data set and controlling for culturally relevant factors (i.e., climate, gun ownership, population density, collectivism, access to health care, economic deprivation). Written by our own Markus Kemmelmeier, Ph.D..
