Annotation: The effects of gender role stereotypes on the prison of services to adult, noninstitutionalized male victims of sexual assault were studied using interviews with 30 providers of sexual assault crisis services in a major city in Georgia.
Abstract: The interviews focused on the providers' experiences with male sexual assault victims, their attitudes toward these men, and the services provided by their organizations. The analysis revealed that although official reports of male sexual assault victims are relatively uncommon, male victims do exist and are more numerous that official statistics indicate. In addition, findings suggest that traditional gender role stereotypes, lack of responsiveness to male victims, and gaps in service provision prevent sexually assaulted man from obtaining the help they need. 10 references (Author abstract modified)
