One In Suffer Child Abuse: Fact, Allegedly

by | 3rd, December 2008

FACTS on child abuse in the Guardian:

Some 5-10% of girls and 1-5% of boys have been subjected to penetrative sex, usually by a family friend or relative. If sexual abuse is defined more widely – as anything from being shown pornographic magazines to rape – it is estimated that it will include at least 15% of girls and 5% of boys.

Porn mags to rape?

 Those like Baby P who are picked up by the social services and placed on the at-risk register are only the tip of the iceberg.

The only statistic that would appear to be correct is: not everyone gets caught.
