Beyers, Julie Miethke; Leonard, Jean M.; Mays, Virginia K.; Rosen, Lee A.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v15 n5 p451-66 May 2000
Study examined response of male (n=240) and female (n=240) college students who read vignettes of physical and sexual abuse of male and female victims. No significant differences were found between ratings of severity of abuse behaviors depicted with female victims. Women, however, rated sexual abuse of women against men as significantly more abusive than did the men. (Author/JDM)
