Peer Sexual Harassment:Finding Voice, Changing Culture— An Intervention Strategy for Adolescent Females

Peer Sexual Harassment:Finding Voice, Changing Culture— An Intervention Strategy for Adolescent Females This exploratory intervention study examines the effectiveness of a single-sex women's studies course in reducing sexual harassment in an at-risk high school. It was hypothesized that the young women's loci of control would become more internal as a result of the course and participants would feel they had more control over their lives. Findings indicate that participants' knowledge of sexual harassment gained from the intervention had been retained and reports of sexual harassment increased. Administrative referrals for sexual harassment within the school were reduced by one third during the semester following the intervention. Participants' perceptions of their levels of internality increased over time. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Violence Against Women SAGE

Peer Sexual Harassment:Finding Voice, Changing Culture— An Intervention Strategy for Adolescent Females

Abstract

This exploratory intervention study examines the effectiveness of a single-sex women's studies course in reducing sexual harassment in an at-risk high school. It was hypothesized that the young women's loci of control would become more internal as a result of the course and participants would feel they had more control over their lives. Findings indicate that participants' knowledge of sexual harassment gained from the intervention had been retained and reports of sexual harassment increased. Administrative referrals for sexual harassment within the school were reduced by one third during the semester following the intervention. Participants' perceptions of their levels of internality increased over time.
