The Effects of the Hook-up Culture
It is so easy to become numb to these everyday occurrences on college campuses, but it is dangerous not to recognize how empty and harmful such lifestyle choices can be for college women. Shaw discusses the increasing number of pregnant teen celebrities and the acceptance of such behaviors as normal by our society.
The question in my mind remains, how can we respond most effectively? NeW has confronted the hook-up culture from the beginning of its existence and worked to explain the dangers that go along with such habits. We must continue to analyze, discuss, and explain not only the problems with the hook-up culture for women while they are in college but also evaluate the lasting repercussions that will follow them long after their college days end.
