Quick Insights – Child Sexual Exploitation
The sexual exploitation of children is an insidious crime which harms far too many children. It’s historically a topic of conversation that most of society is too confronted by and would rather avoid discussing. In order to shift the dial we have a responsibility to encourage constructive public discourse about this serious crime.
Sexual exploitation and abuse irrevocably harms children. And there is often a misconception that when there is an online aspect to the abuse, it reduces the seriousness of the crime. Each image and video harms a child, and the majority of child sexual abuse material found online involves the physical abuse of a child.
