The international feminist contributors to this book look through the lens of post-structuralism at how child sexual abuse is differently represented and understood in the populist, academic, clinical, media and legal context
They re-work earlier feminist analysis and show how child sexual abuse is not just about gender and power but also about class, race and sexuality
The first theoretical section critiques normative theories of the 'effects' of abuse, explores the impact and consequences of feminist interventions and critically examines the potential usefulness of a post-structuralist approach
In the second part, these understandings are applied to specific arenas of practice with the aim of providing a framework for critical intervention and alternative and better ways of working with child sexual abuse
