Of the 20 areas we covered in our 2015 general election manifesto, where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted by the actions and/or inactions of the state, the lengthiest section (7 pages) was devoted to sexual abuse (pp.31-7). An extract from the first of the seven pages:
Few women are held accountable for sex offences, including those women who sexually abuse children. It’s known from a major American survey (details below) that slightly over 25% of sex offences are committed by women against men (with no male accomplices).
We would therefore expect the male/female ratio of people charged with sex offences to be a little under 3:1. In the UK, in 2013, the ratio was 146:1.
Our thanks to Jeff for some good news, the opening of the first male sexual abuse clinic in London.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
