Review, Network Spring 2006: Girls and young women who experience sexual abuse cannot be stereotyped. No one can tell from the outside whether or not you’ve been a victim. In 2002, children and youth accounted for 61% of reported sexual assault cases. Girls represented 79% of those cases. Furthermore, 54% of girls under the age of 16 have experienced some form of unwanted sexual attention. 24% of these have experienced sexual assault, and 17% have experienced incest. And many of these girls never share their stories—they remain hidden and voiceless. Until now. In this work, the author offers us a glimpse into the worlds of teenaged girls and young women who are abuse survivors. These young women tell their stories of incest, date rape, acquaintance rape, and mentor abuse. The stories deserve to be heard. The truth hurts, but it also heals.
