Violence and Gender

Bisexual women are more at risk of gender violence

Fighting against gender violence requires that we know who is more at risk of being a victim or an offender of such violence, and what are the main contexts and reasons of these violence. In this regard, the study (« Sexual Assault Victimization Among Straight, Gay/Lesbian, and Bisexual College Students » is particularly enriching. Indeed, it indicates that: two undergraduate bisexual women out of five are victims of sexual violence (about twice as much as the violence experienced by heterosexual women on college campuses), as well as one bisexual or heterosexual men of every four. Moreover, most of these assaults is committed when the victim is not able to consent (because of alcohol or when asleep).

These are relevant data to take into account to efficiently counteract the multiples forms of gender violence.
