Abstract

International students bring their respective cultures and expectations to the USA; these expectations include their social constructs regarding relationships and the treatment of women. International Business Times reported alarming percentages of rape in several foreign countries. In South Africa, 28-37 % of adult men reportedly committed rape (Iaccino 2014). Sweden reported the highest European rape percentage with 63 rape cases per 100,000. In turn, a third of Swedish women endure sexual assault before their 20th birthday. Caribbean countries reported comparable data with approximately 48 % of adolescent girls facing sexual assault (Iaccino 2014). In regard to Asian countries, the United Nations revealed that 10 % of Asian Pacific men reported forced sex with a non-partner and 24 % reported forced sex with a partner. In Papua New Guinea, 59 % of men reported raping sexual partners (Fossett 2013). While these statistics may startle the American reader, these incidents are an unfortunate social norm for many global citizens.
