Two studies address the role of hormonal shift across menstrual cycle in female dehumanization of other women. In Study 1, normally ovulating women (NOW) and women who use hormonal contraceptives (HCW) are compared in terms of how much they dehumanize other women and two other control targets (men and elderly people). In NOW, the level of dehumanization of other women, but not of men and elderly people, increases as the conception risk is enhanced. HCW do not show this pattern of results. In… Expand
Automatic Dehumanization Across Menstrual Cycle
In the current study we address the role of hormonal fluctuations across menstrual cycle in female dehumanization of women and men. Using a sequential priming procedure in a lexical decision task, weExpand
Hormonal contraceptive use and the objectification of women and men
Abstract The purpose of this study was to test the influence of combined hormonal contraceptive (CHC) use on women’s objectification of other women and men (i.e., the tendency to attributeExpand
Money, Status, and the Ovulatory Cycle
Each month, millions of women experience an ovulatory cycle that regulates fertility. Previous consumer research has found that this cycle influences women's clothing and food preferences. TheExpand
The ovulatory shift: proceptive and receptive mating behaviours across the menstrual cycle
TLDR
This dissertation provides rationale and preliminary support for the reliability and validity of the PARMSS and provides further evidence that women’s sociosexuality is associated with differential shifts in proceptive mating behaviour across the menstrual cycle. Expand
Automatic female dehumanization across the menstrual cycle
TLDR
Results show that the female dehumanization is automatically elicited by menstrual cycle-related processes and likely associated with an enhanced activation of mate-attraction goals. Expand
Do Hormonal Contraceptives Alter Mate Choice and Relationship Functioning in Humans
Most women in the United States use hormonal contraceptives at some point in their lives, yet little is known about their psychological side-effects. A number of scholars have recently argued thatExpand
Women selectively guard their (desirable) mates from ovulating women.
TLDR
It is suggested that women can be sensitive to subtle cues of other women's fertility and respond in ways that may facilitate their mate retention goals while not thwarting their affiliative goals. Expand
Other women’s fertility moderates female resource distribution across the menstrual cycle
TLDR
Evidence is found for an interaction between participant and target fertility, such that women withhold more resources from another woman, thereby keeping more for themselves, when both women are in the fertile (late follicular) phase of their menstrual cycle. Expand
Women’s Attention to and Memory for Fertile- and Non-Fertile Phase Women Across the Menstrual Cycle
ObjectivesAcross the menstrual cycle, women exhibit fluctuations in psychosocial motivations. Some evidence suggests that near ovulation, women exhibit increased status concerns and behaviors thatExpand
WOMEN'S COMPETITION FOR MATES: EXPERIMENTAL FINDINGS LEADING TO ETHOLOGICAL STUDIES
There has been an explosion of survey-based and experimental work pertaining to women’s intrasexual competition for mates. Rather than extensively review this growing and vast body of literature, theExpand

Oral Contraceptives Suppress Ovarian Hormone Production
TLDR
Findings from three studies designed to test humans’ ability to discriminate among infants on the basis of cuteness strongly indicate that female reproductive hormones play a role in sensitivity to cuteness, and women who were taking exogenous hormones for contraception are tested. Expand

Changes in Women's Choice of Dress Across the Ovulatory Cycle: Naturalistic and Laboratory Task-Based Evidence
TLDR
It is suggested that clothing preference shifts could reflect an increase in female—female competition near ovulation, and sexually unrestricted women, for example, showed greater shifts in preference for revealing clothing worn to the laboratory near Ovulation. Expand
Hormonal contraceptive use and mate retention behavior in women and their male partners
TLDR
Examining the relationship between mate retention behavior in heterosexual women and their male partners and women's use of hormonal contraceptives finds that women using hormonal contraceptives report more frequent use of mate retention tactics, specifically behaviors directed toward their partners (i.e., intersexual manipulations).

Conditional expression of women's desires and men's mate guarding across the ovulatory cycle
TLDR
These findings demonstrate ovulation-contingent shifts in desires and behaviors that are sensitive to varying fitness payoffs, and they provide support for the good genes hypothesis of human female extra-pair mating. Expand

TLDR
Support for and speculate on the consequences of pill-induced choice of otherwise less-preferred partners for relationship satisfaction, durability and, ultimately, reproductive outcomes are reviewed. Expand
Fertility and Intergroup Bias in Racial and Minimal-Group Contexts
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the association between fertility and intergroup bias is not limited to groups defined by race, but extends to group categories that are minimally defined, and may depend on the extent to which women associate out-group men with physical formidability. Expand
