Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v15 n4 p513-21 1991
Undergraduate students (n=480) responded to a vignette describing a sexual interaction between a father and daughter (either 7 or 15 years old). More causal and moral responsibility was attributed to victims who responded passively. Older victims were perceived to be more morally responsible than younger victims but only in situations involving low levels of coercion. (Author/DB)
