I am a female adult student studying human behaviour at university. I am currently particularly interested in why some women are bringing sexual abuse cases to court now from experiences as long ago as their childhood, perhaps as long ago as 40 or 50 years ago.
I have just read an account of one woman who in court told the assembled lawyers and the judge that she enjoyed the molestation from the age of 12 at the time. Her molester who is now in his late seventies was sentenced to 16 years in prison.So what has changed in her mind in all those years since then?
There seems to be a lot of cases similar to this being brought currently, almost a trend. I realise that of course there are exceptional cases where the abuse is nasty or below the age of puberty, but there is an age that many girls reach that their sexual feelings are so powerful that they are almost uncontrollable.
I would be interested to have some comments about this.
