Abstract

The present study explored the social representation of sexual violence, the prevailing attitudes, and sex, city of belonging, and school year effects. The sexual violence representation of our sample was characterized by opposing and often contradictory thoughts. Results suggested that in general, sexual violence has been considered as an “imposed sexual act with physical force” caused by lack of consideration other’s right. The sample describes as a possible cause of rape is a lack of consideration of human rights, whether a culture of sexuality improper. Students of Ragusa than those of Catania have a stereotypical image of man "predator" and woman "prey" perhaps becauseof culture and system of values. Students believe that it is useful to adopt educational methods that promote respect for their own and others, but also the use of cruel punishment.
