Dr. Blumenstein interviewed for KTUU Channel 2 News series The Red Zone: Part 1

Dr. Lindsey Blumenstein, Justice faculty, was interviewed by KTUU Channel 2 News recently about  UAA student and the risk of sexual assault and rape.  The news report was part 1 in a 3-part series called the "Red Zone," a term describing the first 13 weeks of the fall semester on a college campus when students are at a higher risk of being sexually assaulted or raped. 

Dr. Blumenstein described the courses she teaches about this issue and her recent research. When asked about how to stay safe, she noted, ""I think the idea that it's always going to be this stranger is a bad idea to put into a person's head because it's actually more likely to be somebody you're in a relationship with or somebody you were in a relationship with."
