Project description

There is an overall shortage of research on male sexual victimization. Existing stereotypes in society (i.e. men should be strong and sexually dominant)make it difficult for men to accept this happened to them. This project aims to produce new insights in male sexual violence by clarifying the mediated effect of gender roles on its prevalence and consequences.
