ABSTRACT

Anne Harris was waiting with anticipation for Barbara to come home from her class at the nearby university. She had some good news to share with her daughter. Barbara had received a letter stating that she was accepted into her first choice of the graduate programs she had applied to. Barbara arrived considerably later than usual and it soon became apparent that something was wrong. Her clothes and hair were disheveled and she had a frightened look on her face. When Anne asked what was wrong Barbara shouted at her, "I was raped on the way to my car!" She refused to say anything more and ran into her room.
