Eastern Mediterranean countries appear to have particularly high levels of concern compared with other Eurasian regions, perhaps because of the favourable climate for crop production and classical culture.
However, there is other evidence of female dominance in animal welfare concerns. Members of animal rights activist organizations are predominantly female, at least in North America (Einwohner 1999) and Eurasia (Phillips and Izmirli 2012), and more women than men are vegetarians (Neumark-Sztainer et al. 1997; Phillips et al. 2011).

The experiments showed, however, a number of methodological issues (especially strong preferences for environments birds were not housed in immediately before the test) that restricted the suitability of these tests for the quantitative welfare assessment of chronically food-restricted birds (Dixon et al.
