Women's Fear of Violence in the Wilderness.
Day, Tobin; Potter, Tom G.
Pathways: The Ontario Journal of Outdoor Education, v11 n4 p9-11 Jun-Jul 1999
Seven female students in an outdoor-recreation program were interviewed to determine how fear of violence affects experienced female wilderness travelers. The themes that emerged were stereotypes about sexual assaults, situation and trip location, and alcohol consumption. The difference between real fear and false perceptions is discussed, along with implications and recommendations for outdoor leaders. (TD)
