Child Sexual Abuse: Victim Age, Victim Gender, and Observer Gender as Factors Contributing to Attributions of Responsibility.
Back, Sudie; Lips, Hilary M.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v22 n12 p1239-52 Dec 1998
A study involving 145 undergraduates investigated the effects of victim age, victim gender, and observer gender on the attribution of responsibility for extrafamilial child sexual abuse. Greater responsibility was assigned to older rather than younger victims, and male observers attributed greater responsibility and causality to the victim and the parents. (Author/CR)
