II. SVRI Members Request

1) Request for Assistance: Publishing a Paper on Male Victims Of Sexual and Gender Based Violence

Catherine Matthews graduated from the University of Richmond this past May with a Bachelor of Arts, having completed two majors and a minor. One of her majors was a self-designed Interdisciplinary Studies major in Global Human Rights that culminated in an independent thesis. She chose to research male victims of sexual and gender based violence. She conducted a baseline research study of approximately 18,500 words on the issue, delving into forms, frequency, impact, intent, and significance. She is now looking to publish this paper - independent of any organization - but is having difficulty finding an outlet for publication. Any suggestions or help that anyone might have will be appreciated. Contact Catherine directly at: catherine.p.matthews at gmail.com <mailto:catherine.p.matthews at gmail.com> .
