Description

Abstract:

I request funding to fly to France with my research partner to interview women about how safe they feel partying in France. College parties in the U.S. are known to be unsafe and hostile for women, but in France the parties are different because everyone is with their friends and actually dancing. This difference in party atmosphere may be due to the binge drinking culture found in the U.S. compared to the French drinking culture of frequent drinking but in moderation. In order to allow women to feel more comfortable partying in the U.S., I want to answer the pressing question: Do women in France feel safer partying there and if so, what is the reason for that? I hope to use the interviews we conduct to create a documentary that compiles these stories in order to examine the cultural differences that lead to a different party atmosphere in France compared to college parties in the U.S. in hopes of creating a safer party space for women.
