Predicting Perceptions of Date Rape Based on Individual Beliefs and Female Alcohol Consumption.
Osman, Suzanne L.; Davis, Clive M.
Journal of College Student Development, v40 n6 p701-09 Nov-Dec 1999
Investigates whether female alcohol consumption predicts perceptions of date rape based on two personality measures administered to 290 undergraduates. Results indicate that a stronger belief in token resistance to sex was related to weaker perceptions of rape. As hypothesized, participants scoring higher on sex-role stereotyping perceived fewer rapes than those scoring lower. (Contains 28 references.) (Author/GCP)
