  3. Menstrual taboos will be positively associated with female puberty rites.Kitahara, Michio - Female puberty rites: reconsideration and speculation, 1983 - 2 Variables

    Brown's (1963) three hypotheses on female puberty rites were tested. After presenting an adjustment for data quality control, the author demonstrates that Brown's (1963) relationships became insignificant. Female physiology as symbolized by menstruation is suggested as a better predictor for female puberty rites.

  8. "Extensiveness of menstrual taboos observed in a primitive society is determined to a significant extent by the average intensity of castration anxiety [measured by a composite predictor based on child rearing practices]" (69, 89)Stephens, William N. - A cross cultural study of menstrual taboos, 1967 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the relationship between menstrual taboos and castration anxiety. The author posits that the extensiveness of menstrual taboos is determined by the average castration anxiety. Using various measures of castration anxiety, the author finds significant support for this hypothesis.

  9. "Stephens reports that the postpartum taboo tends to be bimodally distributed. On the contrary, degree of elaboration of menstrual taboos is associated with increasing length of the postpartum taboo" (104)Young, Frank W. - Menstrual taboos and social rigidity, 1967 - 2 Variables

    This study first reviews two explanations of menstrual taboos: taboos as an aspect of social rigidity and a psychogenic interpretation of menstrual taboos. The authors chiefly advocate a sociogenic explanation of menstrual taboos.
