Investigating Intimate Partner Sexual Assault (10/2012)
One of the most misunderstood areas of sexual assault response involves sexual assault in the context of marriage or other intimate relationship. Many people seem to believe that if a person has had consensual sex with their partner or spouse in the past - often numerous times - then that person must have consented on the occasion that is being reported as a sexual assault. Yet as many as 9% of women who are sexually assaulted are victimized by their husbands (National Victim Center, 1992). Clearly, sexual assault committed by an intimate partner is more common than many people think. (Originally distributed 10/2012)
