Why do Some Women Become Prosocial in Times of Uncertainty

After about 5 months of work, I am very close to finishing my Mphil Thesis.
The main conclusion of the study is that "under conditions of uncertainty (and not certainty) women with a slow life history strategy (i.e. socio-sexually restricted) use more costly signals with positive externality (that increase third parties' welfare) in order to increase their attractiveness in the eyes of men with above average current socio-economic status."
A lot of work and a small step forward in evolutionary psychology and consumer behavior.
