Description of Visually Impaired Persons' Vulnerability to Sexual and Physical Assault

Abstract: This article reports on a national survey of 161 visually impaired women's and men's perceptions of their vulnerability to and experiences with actual or attempted sexual or physical assaults and their experience with and desire for training in self-defense. Although the women perceived themselves to be at significantly more risk for assault than did the men, 1 in 3 of all the respondents had been targets of either attempted or actual assault at some point in their lives.
