Child Sexual Abuse: Through a Mother's Lens

Sandy Davidson is an enrolled member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe and the mother of Cristine, a survivor of long-term child sexual abuse. This presentation by a mother and her daughter is told after many years of healing, processing, and seeking solutions to end child sexual abuse. Their story about surviving the abuse—and the responses from family, community, and systems—is told with the hope that focusing on the behaviors of perpetrators will result in closing the gap between current responses to child sexual abuse and what survivors really need.
