Child Sexual Abuse: A Social-Historical Perspective

Top of page

This videotape takes a look at the social factors that have influenced the sexual abuse of children. From the "Freudian cover-up" which excused the male abuser while pointing the finger at the victim, to the sexualized images of children in advertising today, our society has condoned and remained silent about childhood sexual abuse. Florence Rush, Louise Armstrong and others expose the myths and misconceptions. Recorded at the Conference on Counselling the Sexual Abuse Survivor, Winnipeg, Feb. 1985.
