Description:
This book presents a disturbing picture of non-consensual sex
among children and young adults in developing countries. It
documents a range of non-consensual experiences–from unwanted
touch to forced penetrative sex and gang rape–and sheds light on
the experience of young males as both victims and perpetrators,
and the unsupportive and sometimes abusive roles of families,
teachers, health care providers and law enforcement agents. It
argues for a radical review and reform of programs designed to
prevent abuse and support survivors.
