  • Sexual abuse should not be a normal part of growing up

    By on 17 November 2015

    I’m of two minds about this new campaign for The Children’s Society (UK) by VCCPme: The storyline is chilling, and deeply affecting. Especially when we see the family’s ignorance of what the young woman is going through. At the same time,...
