Sexual Assault on the College Campus: The Role of Male Peer Support
SAGE, Jan 2, 1997 - Family & Relationships - 230 pages
For many students, coeducational college campus life is marred by traumatic experiences of sexual assault. While there are many social determinants of rape and attempted rape, this work examines the pivotal role of male peer support in legitimizing the sexual assault of women. The authors use extensive prior studies together with their own investigations, including a national representative study and local campus victimization surveys carried out in the United States and Canada.
