Scope:

This study addresses the issue of sexual harassment aimed at children using a report published by the Forensics Department and the booklet titled ‘A Guide for Parents’ of the Society for the Prevention of Child Negligence and Exploitation.

An Excerpt from the Article:

The report published by the Forensics Department translates the dimension of the issue into figures. According to this report, sexual harassment applications have been filed for 1455 children in two years. But what is the number of those who have not applied or are prevented from filing an application? This figure is only a small part of the iceberg we know. The report says that 1236 of the children suffering sexual harassment are female, and 219 are male. 70% of children are aged between 7 and 11. Most of the suspects who have committed sexual harassment against children are persons previously known to the children. (p.18)
