Living Femininity, Living Risk: Women's Reception of Gendered Public Health Messaging

University of Toronto, Department of Sociology


I am a PhD student at the University of Toronto. As part of my PhD research, I am hoping to learn about how women understand and respond to gendered public health messages that address women’s safety (e.g., local police initiatives that suggest strategies to enhance personal safety). Participation will involve a one-time focus group interview lasting approximately 60 minutes. Focus groups will occur online, via a virtual platform, and will be scheduled at your convenience. I will show some examples of Canadian gendered public health messages, and pose open-ended questions about your responses and reactions to the examples presented.
