Survivors Seeking Justice

The quest for justice by adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse moved forward incrementally in 2015. While there were some disappointments, to be sure, there were significant victories, both in the legislatures and the courts, to provide grounds for hope going forward. And, perhaps as important, the urgent need to hold child predators legally accountable is being reported more frequently in the media, which is turn, increases public awareness of the issue. Moreover, advocacy groups have a renewed commitment to join together in the fight to advance survivors’ legal rights.

Turning a Blind Eye to Injustice

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

We recently received the shocking reports that the American military had instructed its soldiers in Afghanistan to ignore incidents of sexual assaults on children committed by local militias that the Pentagon is funding and training. As reported, U.S. service members received orders from their superiors to disregard child sexual abuse by their Afghan “allies” because the commission of sexual crimes against children is part of the Afghan “culture.” And taking this position to its shameful depths, the military disciplined, and even in some cases ended the careers of, service members who ignored such orders and actively intervened on behalf of the abused children.
