Decisions and Attitudes Concerning Child Sexual Abuse: Does the Gender of the Perpetrator Make a Difference to Child Protection Professionals?
Beardsall, Lynn; Hetherton, Jacquie
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v22 n12 p1265-83 Dec 1998

Following male-perpetrated sexual abuse, case registration and perpetrator imprisonment was considered more appropriate. (Author/CR)
