Masculinity and Femininity in Male and Female Perpetrators of Child Sexual Abuse.
Pothast, Henry L.; Allen, Craig M.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n9 p763-67 Sep 1994
This study examined masculinity and femininity in adult male (n=75) and female (n=38) perpetrators of child sexual abuse. Results did not support the hypothesis that perpetrators of either sex would be more masculine and less feminine than nonclinical adult groups. Findings suggested a trend opposite the predicted direction. (DB)
