Reporting Sexual Assault: Why Some Women Stay Silent

Why do some victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment choose not to disclose what happened to them? A team of researchers, including doctoral students Kaitlin Walsh Carson and Sara Babad, Professor Claudia Chloe Brumbaugh (Queens College) and Professor Valentina Nikulina (The Graduate Center, CUNY), sought to understand the reasons for nondisclosure of sexual trauma, and recently published their findings in the journal Violence Against Women. Their study was also recently showcased on the CUNY website SUM, which features books, published academic research, and creative work by CUNY faculty and students.
