Rape and Responsibility: How and How Much Is the Victim Blamed?
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v7 n5 p547-59 May 1981
In two experiments, subjects made attributions after reading a description of a rape. Responsibility was more strongly attributed to the victim's character for unrespectable victims, and to chance for respectable victims. Males blamed the victim's character more than females; females emphasized the role of chance more than males. (Author/GC)
