Women's Reception of Gendered Public Health Messaging

06 July 2020

This project aims to understand how women respond to 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 60-90 minutes. I will present some examples of public safety initiatives during the focus group, and ask you general questions about them. Focus groups will be fully online, and will be scheduled at your convenience.
