dc.description Research Brief en_US
dc.description.abstract Victims of sexual violence can experience a range of negative health outcomes over the course of their lives. A substantive body of research finds that individuals can experience physical, mental, and behavioral health impacts well beyond the duration of the event(s). Less is known, however, about particular consequences and life contexts of Black/African American women who have been victimized. Basile, Smith, Fowler, Walters, and Hamburger (2016) offer a window into the lived experiences of African American women in Sexual violence victimization and associations with health in a community sample of African American women. This study is part of a larger effort to better understand the context surrounding the findings that women of color experience sexual violence at a much higher rate than White women. This research translation summarizes the article’s key findings to help support sexual violence prevention and response strategies with Black and African American communities. (Author text) en_US
