A resident of Findlay and graduate student of the University of Findlay recently got a book published. Bailey Poland wrote a book titled “Haters: Harassment, Abuse, and Violence Online”.
The book is about online harassment and abuse of women, looking at the psychological side as well as solutions.
Poland said that the book started as a school project and that it grew out of her own experiences. It grew into presentations. She said that her work had gained notice because she was talking about trigger warnings on Twitter. Eventually, she gained the attention of a reporter from the New Yorker and of the University of Nebraska’s Press acquisitions editor.
She sent in a few chapter samples and Potomac Books decided to publish the book. She said that the book is available in most bookstores and can be found on amazon.
