Earlier today CNN ran a story (Update: since removed!) about new research suggesting that women’s political views are shaped by their menstrual cycles. I’m not going to rehash everything that’s wrong with the piece, beyond what I’ve already tweeted, but I did want to point out one thing.
The study, “The Fluctuating Female Vote: Politics, Religion, and the Ovulatory Cycle,” which is to appear in an upcoming issue of the journal Psychological Science, has three authors —Kristina Durante, Ashley Arsena, and Vladas Griskevicius.
- Kristina Durante is an Assistant Professor of Marketing at UT San Antonio.
- Ashley Arsena is a doctoral student in UTSA’s Marketing program.
- Vladas Griskevicius is an Associate Professor of Marketing at the University of Minnesota.
Thought you might find that illuminating.
