Free Access: The sociology of sexual harassment and assault – a selection of free articles

November 29, 2017 2679

The issue of sexual assault, the deceit, the gender stereotypes and the level of taboo surrounding the topic, has once again hit our mainstream news agenda. Yet what is less talked about in these debates is the resulting impact that emotional and physical assault has on the victim and how this can then play out into many areas of their lives. Supporting access to, and creating a platform for informed debate, SAGE has enabled access to a selection of journal articles that explore the wider impact of sexual assault, with a particular focus on the psyche and development of the victim.
