Example text

In 1971, she was determined to have Maria back home. East Sussex County Council, in whose care Maria was, agreed to a plan of rehabilitation, supported Maria's mother's application to discharge the care order and recommended that it be replaced by a supervision order. Maria, who had been very resistant to returning to her mother, died 13 months later, grossly under-nourished and severely beaten by her step-father. This was despite the fact that throughout this period there had been many health and welfare workers involved in the oversight of her development who had failed to `see' the neglect and ill-treatment that she must have been subjected to over some considerable part of this time.

These changes reflect the fact that the new emphasis on abuse of children was already finding the 1969 Children and Young Persons Act deficient for the purpose of protecting them. Child abuse work 1975±85 For the remainder of the 1970s the pressure to create a more effective detection, investigation and monitoring system for child abuse continued unabated. From 1973 to 1981 there were 26 inquiries into the deaths and serious abuse of children in Britain caused by their carers (Corby et al. 2001).

Such fears and anxieties demonstrate how deep-seated the taboo really was. However, we simply do not know to what extent sexual abuse of children either within or outside families was a feature in ancient societies. This is hardly surprising. As we shall see in Chapter 3, it is only since the 1980s that there has been a concerted attempt to focus on intrafamilial sexual abuse in Britain and the USA and to try to measure its true extent. Similarly, therefore, and no doubt for the same reasons, there is also very little information on the subject of sexual abuse during the Middle Ages.
