Summary This volume is the first to examine in depth the sensitive and controversial topic of female sexual aggression. Working from a range of theoretical perspectives, contributors challenge prevailing stereotypes of women as passive or resistant participants in heterosexual interaction, and men as initiators or aggressors. Like men, the book proposes, many women are clearly interested in sex and some are sexually aggressive. Bringing much-needed attention to ethical, political, and conceptual questions surrounding this neglected area of inquiry, this volume is rich with insights that will enhance clinical work and set new directions for future research.
It is an essential resource for psychotherapists, educators, counselors, social workers, and other professionals who confront issues of sexual aggression in their work.
