New figures released by the National Union of Students indicate that over one third of women students who identify as lesbian, bisexual and/or trans (LBT) are the victims of a sexual assault.
Postgraduate researcher Tami Peterson conducted the new analysis using figures from a 2010 questionnaire distributed by the NUS Women’s Campaign. The “Hidden Marks” survey involved 2,058 women students, 18% of whom described themselves as lesbian, bisexual, trans, queer, or otherwise non-straight/non-cis.
