What I find interesting is that people either want them to have more influence or less influence, but mostly we don't them to have the same amount of influence.  Also that women favor unions over men.  I wonder why?

I suspect it's related to the uneven distribution of emotional labor. Women are expected to remember minutia about extended family members, which means my sister and I both know that my mom's family was held together after her mother's death in large part due to her father's union, but my brother doesn't.

I think this is a really good point.
