Sexual Violence ResearchCALCASA has released a new 144 page report titled Sexual Violence Research: Findings From a Systemic Review of the Literature 2015-2019 that highlights articles from the leading academic journals, organizational reports, and resources that have the potential to support the anti-sexual violence movement and all organizations/individuals committed to asserting the dignity of all people.
This report synthesizes key findings from a comprehensive review of the peer-reviewed research literature on sexual violence in the United States published between January 2015 and March 2019. The work serves as a sequel to the 2014 CALCASA report and 2015 follow-up report which covered the period from 2005 to 2015.
This review organizes the most recently available data into topical sections to maximize its utility for advocates, prevention practitioners, activists, policy makers and funders in identifying scientific studies that support evidence-based programming and policies for the state.
