Sexual Violence Against Children: Inform, Prevent, Protect


Children form the most vulnerable and innocent section of our society. Sexual violence and abuse against children is a prevalent evil that needs to be addressed and redressed. What most people are unaware of, and therefore end up neglecting or ignoring the existence of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA), is that it can take various forms – physical, mental, etc. While marks of physical sexual violence can usually be visible if due attention is paid, the scars of emotional violence are difficult to read. Children might not be able to speak out about the abuse experienced by them till they get much older. Hence, it is imperative to have a holistic understanding of everything that CSA entails.

Additionally, it arms them with details of steps to be taken in case of such occurrences. Tips to prevent CSA have also been provided for primary caregivers of children like parents and teachers.
