dc.description.abstractThis paper examines the epidemic of raunch culture in the youth of the United States, specifically examining the phenomenon of the bachelorette party as a symptom of raunch culture. I examine the development of raunch from the Women’s Liberation Movement to the early twenty-first century, and discuss how the bachelorette party is evidence of the infiltration of raunch into the culture of the United States. I discuss the impact of raunch in schools and provide examples of how teachers, specifically in the art classroom, can counter raunch culture in day-to-day activities with youth. With awareness and intention the art teacher is in a prime position to impact youth and address issues of raunch in their lives.
