dc.descriptionThis is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published by Taylor & Francis in Deviant Behavior on 17/03/2016, available online: http://wwww.tandfonline.com/doi:10.1080/01639625.2015.1060805en
dc.description.abstractThe aim is to assess the effect of imprisonment on rape myth acceptance. The research used a sample of male prisoners incarcerated for non-sexual crimes (n = 98) and a sample of males drawn from the general population (n = 160). Simple linear regression did not indicate a significant effect of incarceration on rape myth acceptance. After controlling for background covariates using propensity score matching, analysis revealed a positive significant effect of incarceration on rape myth acceptance. Although further research is required, results indicate that being subject to incarceration has a significant positive effect on stereotypical thinking about rape.
