An Examination of Gender Role Identity, Sexual Self-Esteem, Sexual Coercion and Sexual Victimization in a University Sample
Kelly, Theresa C.; Erickson, Chris D.
Journal of Sexual Aggression, v13 n3 p235-245 Nov 2007
The relationship between gender role identity, sexual self-esteem and sexual coercion was examined through a questionnaire. Participants were 84 undergraduate students from a university in Washington, DC. Contrary to what has been found in the literature, there were weak relationships between sexual coercion and masculinity, and sexual coercion and sexual self-esteem. Participants were not sexually aggressive and experienced little victimization. However, there were gender differences in terms of coercion, victimization, gender role identity and sexual self-esteem. (Contains 3 tables.)
