Ovulatory Cycle Effects on Women’S Attention to High-Status Products

This research relates women’s attention to status-conveying stimuli to the evolutionary principles of reproduction and mate selection. We show that the attention of normally cycling women to high-status products is higher around ovulation than during less fertile phases in their menstrual cycle. Pill use eliminates cycle phase effects.
