Abstract:

“You’ll Distract the Boys!” is an illustrated gamebook in which readers assume the lives of several North American women and girls and navigate the typical experiences they face. Presented with issues such as body censorship, gender construct, and sexual harassment, readers must traverse a maze of objectionable scenarios as a diverse and inclusive cast of characters.
The goal of this project is to utilize interactive narrative as a pedagogical tool that evokes a response of compassion and empathy for women. To illustrate the potential of this medium, the following research document explores a selection of theory and case studies that support the value of interactive storytelling, as well as the methodologies behind the project’s creation.
