Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v21 n3 p351-65 Aug 1999
In interviews with 300 Latina women in Los Angeles County, 100 reported experiencing sexual abuse before age 18, and 60 had not disclosed the abuse to anyone. Victims did not differ from other Latina women in demographic characteristics, citizenship status, or level of acculturation. Nondisclosure was related to lower levels of acculturation. Contains 28 references and interview questions. (SV)
