Abstract

This study analyzed 390 (303 girls and 87 boys) cases of child sexualabuse to understand sex differences in child sexual victimization. Analyses focusese on three domains that have received considerable empirical attention: victims' relationships with the offender, type and extent of abuse, and disclosure. Findings largely replicated previous efforts that reported sex differences in terms of victims' relationships with offenders. Although results also replicated previous findings about sex differences in disclosure patterns, these sex differences were minor in comparison with similarities in the way most instances of abuse were eventually identified. In terms of type and extent of abuse, results were the opposite of previous findings: girls, not boys, were the victims of more physical injury, violent threats, and use of force;and girls, not boys, were more likely to have physically resisted abuse. Divergences in findings were interpreted in terms of memory biasesand social forces operating differently on the sexes.
