Abstract

Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 9, No. 3, 1997 Editorial The police reports were unhappily familiar: There were two victims with commonly uncommon given names like Crystal and Evan. The family was as well-known to Children's Services Division as to each other; stepdad drank, used, and swore and drank, maybe partly to forget his 3 years inside the walls for raping his 13-year-old girlfriend when he was 22. But I couldn't put the file in the regular pile and forget it because the offender this time was the children's mother. Every gem of knowledge we have worked hard to mine, every lecture in school, every preconception neatly fit into our scheme of sexual offend- ing doesn't allow us easily to think of women as sexual offenders. Ours may be the only field in which we can forego the socially correct h/ms and hers; it is automatic--it's a him. We are prompted in this issue to think about girls and women as not only desiring sexual contact, but occasionally forcing it upon others.
