medical institutions is sometimes “jaundiced.” Many women do not get medical help after the incidences. Even though there are significant progress in the recent years in measuring the problem through researches, the definitions used vary greatly. Dissimilarities across cultures also exist in regard to the readiness of individuals to reveal the problem to individuals who carry out research. Consequently, caution is important when international comparisons regarding sexual violence are made. Risk Factors The various methods and contexts in which this problem against members of the female gender takes place makes its explanation complicated.

PROBLEM IN WORLD HISTORY 4 Factors that Increase the Vulnerability of Women Among the forms of the problem that is very common, is that which is committed by a close partner. Consequently, some analysts have argued that for females, marriage or living with a man increases their vulnerability. Other factors include; drug abuse, previous cases of sexual violence, engaging in sexual activities with many people, and poverty. Age Typically, younger girls are more likely to be sexually assaulted. Researchers indicate that most sexual violence victims are children. Some kinds of this act are significantly related with a young age- particularly violence that takes place in academic institutions. Drug Abuse More women are getting vulnerable to the problem because of alcohol and drug consumption. After taking the drugs, it gets harder for them to control themselves. Consequently, they find it hard to protect themselves and fail to act on warning signs. In most cases, places where these individuals take the alcohol are not safe. Previous Records of Sexual Violence There exists substantial evidence that prove the existence of a link between childhood experiences of sexual violence and assaults in adult life. Effects of childhood sexual violence sometimes spread to different victimization forms and issues in the adult life. Research carried out by National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) indicate that there exists a close link between child sexual assaults and being victims of rape and other forms of the same (DeGue, Simon, Basile, Yee, Lang & Spivak, 2012). Individuals who had undergone assaults that involve intercourse have more negative results than their counterparts (individuals who suffer other types of force).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
