"I am full of admiration for the work." --Professor Chris Goddard, director, Child Abuse Prevention Research Australia
"Hannah McGlade is to be congratulated on her courageous, well-researched confirmation that legal and child protection systems are failing (abysmally) to protect Aboriginal children from rape and sexual abuse and, in fact, add to their psychological abuse. This book should be compulsory reading for judges, lawyers, and human service professionals whose work involves children." Dr. Freda Briggs AO, University of South Australia"
"Hannah McGlade can now count herself as one of the brave Aboriginal women she writes about. . . . Her investigation into the widespread sexual abuse and exploitation of Aboriginal women and children is awe-inspiring." Dr. Ailsa M Watkinson, University of Regina"
"[A] brave and powerful contribution to understanding a major social evil. . . . McGlade considers the emotional and social costs, the changing legal status, and points to directions to changing the conditions that lead to child sexual abuse." Judge's report, 2011 Stanner Award"
