40 male and 40 female crisis center clients, evenly divided in terms of molestation history, were examined for possible long-term sequelae of sexual abuse. Although molestation during childhood was associated with previous suicide attempts and with elevated symptomatology on the Trauma Symptom Checklist, no differences between males and females were found on these variables.
