Publish Date: 
2005
Description: 

This research by Walter DeKeseredy and his colleagues in Ohio examines the incidents of and issues surrounding the sexual assault of women in rural areas during separation and/or divorce . The paper concludes by finding that many women were sexually assaulted at various points in the separation process: 53% being sexually assaulted when they wanted to leave, 32% while they were leaving, and 37% after they had left. A strength of this paper is that the women’s voices are included in extended quotes.
