"My mother would worry every single time I went out...": Meanings of Ethnicities and Sexualised Cocercion

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Personal accounts of young ethnic majority and minority women indicate that their perspectives and the personal meanings of sexualised coercion they have experienced are developed through their participation in and across diverse ethnically informed communities of practice.  A simplifying categorisation into ethnic groups is in danger of over-emphasising differences, as well as of overlooking common connections to underlying social/societal meanings of sexualised coercion.
