Sexual harassment at music festivals is a well-known problem. I’m Desert Sun health reporter Nicole Hayden, and I spoke to women at Coachella about their experiences, and one in six said they were sexually harassed this year. AMA.
I’m Nicole Hayden, a health reporter for The Desert Sun/USA Today Network. I focus on researching and compiling data that addresses public health needs and gaps in services. I largely focus on homelessness in the Coachella Valley and southern California. However, during the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals I decided to use my data collection skills to assess the prevalence of sexual harassment at the festivals. I surveyed about 320 women about their experiences. AMA.
