Recommendations for cross-cultural sexual assault prevention with international college students

20 July 2012


This study was undertaken to address the overall lack of sexual violence prevention with international college students at American public universities. An exploratory study was conducted, employing focus groups consisting of university employees and affiliates. The study was informed by the existing literature base and utilized a feminist framework to analyze issues of power and oppression in sexual violence, specifically focusing on how rape-supportive attitudes vary cross-culturally and impact sexual victimization. A multicultural lens is used to address common barriers experienced by the experts in the field and to formulate recommendations for the application of sexual assault prevention approaches to a multinational, multicultural audience.
