Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 10, No. 4, 1998 Editorial As you read this, a woman is being raped in this country, probably in your state, possibly in your city. Despite its widespread prevalence, we should not lose sight of why sexual assault is a crime in all civilized societies: because it creates victims, both short- (Resick, 1993) and long- (Kilpatrick & Best, 1984) term. This lends urgency to the report in this issue by Weickowski, Hartsoe, Mayer, and Shortz that sexual aggression is not the province of grown men alone (or grown women; see Anderson in this issue)—an echo of the alarm sounded in these pages in Volume 9 by Gray, Busconi, Houchens, and Pithers (1997), who have called our attention to the problem of childhood sexual ag- gression. If children can become predators, our efforts must be directed even more strongly toward prevention of sexual abuse, a sadly neglected area in our literature. The efforts of Weickowski et al. and Gray et al. are a step in this direction. We must strive to delineate a subpopulation of youngsters (chiefly male) at the highest risk and then direct attention to a program of awareness
