Abstract

Rates and sequelae of sexual harassment and assault among women in a wartime military sample were examined A second goal was to explore thecomparative impacts of these stressors and combat exposure on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptomatology. Army women (n = 160) were interviewed on return from the Persian Gulf War and again 18 to 24 months later Rates of sexual assault (7.3%), physical sexual harassment(33.1%), and verbal sexual harassment (66.2%) were higher than those typically found in civilian and peacetime military samples. Sexual assault had a larger impact on PTSD symptomatology than combat exposure. Frequency of physical sexual harassment war significantly predictive of PTSD symptomatology. Furthermore, the number of postwar stressful life events mediated the relationship between physical sexual harassmentand symptomatology but was not related to combat exposure. Sexual assault, sexual harassment, and combat exposure appear to be qualitatively different stressors for women, with different correlates and mechanisms of action.
