Abstract

Since November 16th, when ex-footballer Andy Woodward revealed to The Guardian that he had been systematically sexually abused by his football coach at Crew Alexandra, a number of other players have spoken publically about their own experiences of sexual abuse (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38107544). Once again British society is ‘rocked’ by revelations of the systematic sexual abuse of children by high-status men in positions trust and authority. Once again, we ask how this could happen on such a massive scale and without any interventions from the institutions that are supposed to protect children or from the communities in which they live.
