Abstracts:

»Conservative, liberal, and radical perspectives are all represented in the women's movement and feminist theory. This ideological diversity also exists in theories of the sexual assault of women. During the early seventies, radical feminists established rape crisis centers and other services for women who had been sexually assaulted. The participation of social work in this development has been constrained by the profession's primary commitment to a liberal ideology. The deradicalization of sexual assault centers during the past decade provides both opportunity and challenge to the profession to expand its contribution to women who have been sexually assaulted.« (Source: Social Service Review)
