HealthAim article on Taylor Swift cites Blackstone’s sexual harassment study

Amy Blackstone, a sociology professor at the University of Maine, was quoted in the HealthAim article, “Taylor Swift countersues radio personality: The trauma of sexual harassment.” The singer recently filed a countersuit against a radio host who allegedly touched her inappropriately during a meet-and-greet in 2013, according to the article. Sexual harassment has the same traumatic effects on men and women, the article states. The article cited a report by Blackstone that found 70 percent of women and 45 percent of men have had experienced some form of sexual harassment in the workplace.
