This presentation takes a look at whether victim-blaming biases play a role in the recollection of words in a fictional story depicting sexual assault. The presentation uses student responses to a word list with victim-blaming trigger words such as "alcohol" or "short skirt" to assess the impact on memory and analyze our societies tendencies to blame victims of sexual assault. The presentation will break down the responses by gender.
