Home Truths about Child Sexual Abuse: Influencing Policy and Practice - A Reader


Home Truths analyzes the structural constructionist perspective on the origins and effects of violence, abuse and inequality to illustrate the different forms of power relations that exist and how they operate at an institutional and societal plane, and also at an individual level. Issues of marital rape, female mutilation and children who murder are tackled, and scrutinized alongside social policy and legislation.
