Participants Wanted for Survey on Catcalling

I received an email from Dr. Kimberly Fairchild, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Manhattan College, asking for help in recruiting participants for a survey she is conducting. Kimberly is interested in the relationship between early experiences with catcalling and current experiences. The survey she is currently conducting is an extension of her dissertation work. The survey is women-only, completely voluntary, and should only take about 20 minutes to complete. Kimberly has promised to report back to me with the final results next spring, so hopefully I can share them with you here.

If you would like to participate, the link is here. Please remember this is for women only and is voluntary. Kimberly asks me to thank any of you who are willing to take time to participate in this short survey. If you have any comments about the survey, they should be sent to

stranger DOT harassment DOT survey AT gmail DOT com

Please do NOT post them in the comments here, so as not taint others’ responses.

    Thanks for the link; I completed the survey and it did only take 15-20 minutes.

    Uhm, does no one else find the choice of email address regarding the survey to be a bit questionable? It’s certainly evocative and I would think that wouldn’t be what you’d want when you’re conducting research.
