WHERE ARE THE BLACK GIRLS? ARE THERE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN RACIALISED SEXUALISATION AND THE UNDER-IDENTIFICATION OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE AMONG BLACK BRITISH GIRLS?
The experiences of Black girls more specifically Black British African-Caribbean are rarely captured in literature, however even more so when discussing child sexual abuse. This is evident by dearth of research in the UK.
This presentation will share the findings from a MA research project focused on whether racialised sexualisation impacts on the identification and response to child sexual abuse and how Black girls are located on the boundaries of childhood within and outside the home.
