Modeling the Drift Towards Sex Role Deviance.
James, Jennifer; Vitaliano, Peter Paul
The interrelationships of deviant life experiences and current status, i.e., prostitution versus non-prostitution, were investigated by the application of multivariate analyses. Variables were studied involving early home life, pregnancy history, sexual history, and criminal involvement. Based on the analyses, three models were developed that related prostitution to early history, sexual history, and current status. The models were shown to fit the data, and results suggest a revision in the traditional explanations of female sex-role deviance. (Author)
