The questions you ask are the very questions that need to be asked. Only when we question can we begin to make change. When people like you speak out, and then do something to bring about that change, then change can happen. Child abuse awareness is not enough on it's own; it must be accompanied by actions that only awareness can bring about. Actions that make a difference in the lives of the children who cannot protect themselves. You, Ruth, are among the special people who can make such a difference. The one thing I will offer here is to say that fathers who sexually abuse their daughters (and others) are sex offenders, and as a result, they do not have sexual relations with their daughters; they are sexually abusing them. Taking the word "with" out of the equation ensures that there is no misunderstanding; the blame is NOT on the daughter, but rather, strictly on the shoulders of the offender. These girls (and boys, too) cannot consent, and they have no power. The power is with the abuser/offender. But there is also power in the hands of the mothers, but only if they choose to embrace that power so that they can protect their children. Mothers who do otherwise are enabling child sexual abuse; and as such, they are every bit to blame for the abuse as the offender. But all too often, they don't know any better, especially in countries where it's considered almost normal for fathers to sexually abuse their daughters. Therefore, educating women is paramount, if we have any hope of prevention and intervention. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and insights on this pervasive issue with my visitors and me. And keep making a difference, Ruth. We need people like you in the world.

Good article

Ruth, that's a good article because this really helps a lot. Oh, and I am disgusted by the women who let their men mess up their kids because kids should always come first. Again, good article!
