Why awareness about Female Sex Offenders matters

One of the many reasons why we try to raise awareness about female sex offenders is because so many people don’t even think they exist. Many times when someone reports that they have been sexually abused by a woman they are not believed.For example one study found this:

65% of the survivors who tried to tell a therapist, doctor, teacher, or other professional were not believed the first time they disclosed. Overall, 86% of those who tried to tell anyone were not believed the first time they disclosed.” – (Kidscape, Female sexual abuse of children: The ultimate taboo)

The following news story is an example of this happening.  According to the report the man had been reporting that his mother had been sexually abusing him and his brothers and sister.  He first reported his mother when he was 8 years old and nothing happened.  He allegedly told authorities half a dozen times that he was being molested and raped by his mother and still nothing was done.  (You can read the news story here)

For years these children were being molested, tortured, by their mother and nothing was done to help them.  The courage they displayed in reporting it was incredible and the fact that they kept reporting it and being ignored is criminal.
