This compelling book provides cutting-edge information on studies on sexual violence against women conducted on North American campuses - and simultaneously contradicts backlash critics who claim that feminists exaggerate their statistics.

Well-known researchers in the field describe their own work and that of others to illustrate both large-scale and local studies. Topics discussed include: researchers' own emotional experiences of working with rape research; experiences of harassment by subjects; feminist participatory research into lesbian battering; reflexivity in studying prostitutes; the gendered nature of research interviews; and white women studying battered black women.
