Women face a higher risk for injury in front-end crashes

Drivers in New York may be surprised to hear that women run a higher risk for car accident injuries than men. For a study published in July's edition of Traffic Injury Prevention, researchers looked at some 22,000 front-end crashes. They found that women were 73% more likely to be hurt in these types of collisions. Not only that, females were also twice as likely to suffer spine, abdomen and leg injuries.

Motorcyclists: Beware of the influx of traffic in the summer

Summer is here, and with it comes the rush of tourism and the traffic. As someone who loves to be on your motorcycle, you know that the influx of traffic can be dangerous.

More black women face harassment on the job

While sexual harassment cases in New York and across the country may be declining, African-American women are continuing to face escalated amounts of harassment on the job. According to one study, white women and younger women have benefited primarily from campaigns against sexual harassment in the workplace. Instead, researchers say, workplace harassers are targeting women of color and specifically black women. The study gathered data from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) stretching from 1997 to 2016.
