The challenge of protecting boys from sexual abuse

24 Jan 2008
Description

It is widely believed that one in three Australian girls and one in from five to ten boys are sexually abused before they leave school. Using Australian and international research findings, this paper shows that the vulnerability and victimization of boys is substantially under-recognised and under-reported, that boys have been disadvantaged by child sexual abuse being regarded as a feminist issue and that child protection curriculum has not yet been developed to meet the special needs of boys.
