ABSTRACT
This study examined sexual coercion among University female students in South-West Nigeria. The sample consisted of 1,200 sexually coerced female students, selected from nine Universities drawn from South West using purposive sampling technique, simple random and stratified random sampling techniques. An instrument titled 'Sexual Coercion Questionnaire was used. The result showed that different forms of sexual coercion occurred among University female students and the level of occurrence was moderate. Findings revealed that age range and marital status of female students do not significantly influence their experience of sexual coercion among University female students. Based on the findings, it was recommended those young University females that are at greater risk of sexual coercion due to their physical features and some acts that are peculiar to them should be careful in dealing with the opposite sex. University female students (married and unmarried) should desist from congenial attitudes that could predispose them to sexual coercion. Counsellors in universities should organize seminars on female health argue for effective security in Nigeria Universities to curb sexually coercive behaviours. Provision of well secured accommodation for university female students and design effective programme on sexually acceptable behaviour that would enhance a change of behaviour among University female students. The importance of conducting this research is that it provides information on prevalence of sexual coercion, factors responsible for sexual coercion and effects of sexual coercion on female university students. It also provides baseline information for prospective researchers on causes, effects and consequences of sexual coercion.
