Abstract:

One hundred and thirteen women participated in a study of the relationship between acquaintance rape, ego-identity achievement, and locus of control. Results showed that, compared to women who had not been assaulted, survivors of acquaintance rape reported lower ego-identity achievement and greater beliefs that the outcomes of their lives were controlled by luck, chance, or powerful others. It was further found that the relationships between acquaintance rape and the respective forms of external locus of control (Chance and Powerful Others) were mediated by level of ego-identity achievement.
