Child sex abuse within families rampant

The new data, obtained exclusively by The Saturday Age, show that children were the victims in almost three-quarters of sex assault cases and a third of rape cases in Victoria last year. Girls aged 10  to 14 are the most likely to be abused.

As a child sexual abuse prevention/education advocate it is so great to see this on the front page of a major newspaper. This is where we need to be. Acknowledging it and talking about it. If our actions are founded in reality there is some hope of effective action.

Just think about what his happening to these children. Innocence perverted by very sick people. It makes me sick.
