The website and this attached blog are NOT about bashing women. The goal is to highlight the ways in which popular stereotypes of women, motherhood and violence work to further exacerbate survivors’ struggles to make sense of the abuse. It is about highlighting the fact that there are female abusers out there and how society as a whole has dealt or has not dealt with that fact.
While the main focus of the site is on female sex offenders and those impacted by them, we hope to expand this to include the role of female offenders in areas such as Intimate Partner Violence, Child Maltreatment, and more.
The website, this attached blog, and posts are done by a group of volunteers who are non medical professionals (with the exception of our sponsor John Davidson, L.P.C.C.). We blog anonymously, and our posts represent our personal opinions, or in some cases, our interpretations of articles in the popular press, or reputable journals (these places are specified as such and references are given when applicable). Our posts do not represent the opinions of our colleagues, our institutions or work places, or the medical/mental health profession as a whole, just our own thoughts. Please see the disclaimer page for more information.
