Sexual Revictimization- LADIES ONLY

Hello, ladies! I am a student from the department of Sociology at a midwestern university. I am conducting this survey in order to study a social phenomenon called ‘sexual revictimization.’ There have been a few studies done to try and determine what prevents sexual revictimization in women; however, these studies have failed to take into account certain social factors that may increase or decrease a women’s risk to be sexually revictimized. Some of the factors I am looking at include: family history, reporting the crime of victimization, closeness of male friends, and the relation of the perpetrator(s) to the victim. With your answers, I hope to at least make some sort of connection that could be of some help to women in the future who have been victimized. Next quarter, I will actually test my hypotheses; but, I am using this as a pre-test to make sure this survey will work properly. Thank you so much for your help!
