"Lesbians More Likely to Have Been Abused as Children, Survey Indicates"
In The LETTER (Louisville, KY), December 1997, p. 12
(Permission granted to post here.)
[edited from The Washington Blade])
A new survey of 418 women in Chicago concludes that lesbians are more likely to have been sexually abused as children. It also found that lesbians were less likely to abuse alcohol than heterosexual women, but they were more likely to have attempted suicide. Domestic violence rates were about the same.

Twice as many lesbians reported sexual abuse before the age of fifteen, compared to heterosexual women. 29% of all the lesbians surveyed reported such abuse. More black lesbians than white lesbians said they were victims. 48% of lesbians, and 45% of heterosexual women, said they had contemplated suicide, but only 8% of the latter had actually attempted it, compared to 18% of the lesbians surveyed.

The survey also found that 19% of the heterosexual women were earning over $76,000 annually, while only 9% of the lesbians had incomes at that same level. Nearly half of both groups had advanced degrees and earned median incomes of $21-35,000 annually.

The study was published in the most recent issue of the Journal of the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (Volume 3, Number 1 March 1999): "Prevalence of Childhood Sexual Abuse and Related Sequelae in a Lesbian Population" by Susan J. Roberts, DNSc, and Lena Sorenson PhD, RN
