(I figured I was misunderstanding you as soon as I read your next post about flowering with a single 1000w light)

What you describe has some relation to the way feminised seeds are made, but turning your lights on and off in this way will not produce feminised seeds on its own.

Stress-factors, such as irregular light cycles can cause females to become hermpahrodites (this is more liekly if they are susceptible to changing).

If hermie-prone females can be encouraged to turn, the pollen produced by hermpahrodite male flowers can be applied to other females of the same strain (preferably ones that show little or no tendency to turn hermaphrodite).

The seeds produced should be mostly female, though they will probably have a significant chance to turn hermie themselves, if stressed.

If they are stressed, yes, they have more tendency to go hermie.
