Child Sex Abuse Report Exposes ‘Tip of Iceberg’ in China
(Beijing) — Reports of child sexual assault rose by more than 27% in 2016 from a year earlier as China’s judicial authorities grew more willing to publicize cases, particularly in rural areas, a new study shows.
Yet the study’s official data — 433 reports involving 778 victims under age 14 nationwide last year — represents only the tip of China’s sexual abuse iceberg, said Sun Xuemie, whose advocacy group, Girls Protection Foundation, released the figures Thursday.
