Leventhal, John M.; Barthauer, Linda M.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v23 n11 p1117-26 Nov 1999
A survey found 14 of 83 Salvadoran women had experienced child sexual abuse. The median age of abuse was 14. The majority of perpetrators were strangers, friends, or neighbors. The abused women had more depression, but after controlling for relatives killed in the war, that difference was not significant. (Author/CR)
