Canadian Abuse Survivors Speak up on Oprah Show

by John McKiggan

Perhaps it goes without saying, but childhood sexual abuse is a world wide problem.

Lat week I posted about Oprah’s show about male survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Since the show aired there have been a number of news stories about Canadian men who survived childhood sexual abuse who participated in the show.

Here is a story from The Citizen Newspaper: Ottawa Sexual Abuse Survivor Confronts Past on Oprah Winfrey Show.

The CBC reported on a gentleman from Prince Edward Island: Oprah Talks to P.E.I. Abuse Survivor

I wanted to take a moment to applaud the courage of these men and all the others who participated in the show.

The first step to stopping childhood abuse is to talk about it. To acknowlege that it happens. Only then can we as a society take steps to prevent it from happening in the future.
