College Women's Fears and Precautionary Behaviors Relating to Acquaintance Rape and Stranger Rape.
Hickman, Susan E.; Muehlenhard, Charlene L.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v21 n4 p527-47 1997
Studied the fears, beliefs, and behaviors of 139 college women about acquaintance and stranger rape. Women were more afraid of stranger rape and took more precautions against it but paradoxically believed that acquaintance rape was more common. Precautionary behaviors were best predicted by level of fear. Theoretical and educational implications are discussed. (SLD)
