Excerpt
Executive Summary: Statement of the Problem. Over the past two decades, there has been a growing concern with the sexual victimization of women. With large concentrations of younger women on college campuses, it is perhaps not surprising that researchers have shown a special interest in the extent and types of sexual victimization experienced by female students. The resulting empirical research has prompted a number of insights that have advanced our understanding of this phenomenon. The goal of the current project is to build on existing studies and thus to demarcate more clearly the dimensions and nature of the sexual victimization of college women.
