Give me child abuse facts: How often does sexual abuse occur?
Girls are sexually abused more often than boys. The relation between boys and girls at the Dutch offices of doctors at advice centers was 1:3 in 1995. Among adult women, more than 15% have had some kind of negative, unwanted or forced sexual experience with a family member before 16. Of women between 20 and 60, 7% experienced sexual abuse, rape or forced sex in relationships.
