A recent study led by IRWG Research Assistant Professor Quyen Ngo examined sexual violence and aggression among adolescents. The study found that more than half of female adolescents and more than 1 in 3 males reported sexual violence victimization. At the same time, nearly 1 in 4 males and more than 1 in 10 females reported committing acts of sexual violence.
