Today, sex abuse victims are less alone
If you are a survivor of sexual abuse who has not yet reported, you may be attending closely to the trial of former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky to see what happens to those who do. You see some courageous men being taken seriously by prosecutors and journalists. But you see a degree of potential exposure that few victims would want to face, and that we could do a better job of preventing. We all know that sexual abuse is still a crime that is mostly unrevealed. But progress has been made.
Comparisons of recent surveys
to those from the 1980s show far more victims today say they reported or that someone in authority found out.
