Abstract

The purpose of this grounded theory study was to devise a theoretical framework that describes the problem of sexual violence by male intimates from the point of view of 23 women who have experienced such violence at some time in their adult lives. The core variable, forging ahead in a dangerous world, reflects the women's descriptions of life after violence as a struggle to get on with their lives in a social world they know through firsthand experience to be unsafe. The theoretical framework includes three variations of forging ahead (getting back on track, starting over again, and surviving the long, hard road) described by three subgroups of women who experienced different types of sexual violence. The framework also outlines three common processes used to forge ahead: telling others, making sense of the violence, and creating a safer life. The nature and meaning of these processes differ according to group.
