(link) The effects of objectification

This study uses a darn clever way of quantifying the effects of objectification, something that seemed strictly qualitative.  The blog post (and, I assume, the paper too) implies that reactions were gender innate, I think that might be an over-reach. I’d be curious whether (in a different experiment) the camera positions might actually embolden some participants and whether the effects remain over time.
