Childhood sexual harassment

“Intimate acts of violence” was a good piece of writing on the writer’s horrific childhood experience of sexual harassment. Such harassment can take place anywhere—at home or school, on public transport, at public functions. The effects of childhood sexual abuse include depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and propensity to further victimisation in adulthood, and physical injury to the child, among other problems. It is difficult to tell someone what you suffered because as studies have found, many victims know their abuser socially—relatives or close family members, or other acquaintances. Social consciousness and guardians’ vigilance in encouraging children to open up to them can help child survivors of sexual violence deal with their trauma.
