Abstract: I am honoured and humbled to have been asked by Joyce, June and Paula Kavanagh, affectionately known as The Kavanagh Sisters, to write this forward for their deeply moving and exceptionally informative new book. It was without hesitation that I accepted the invitation, because of my admiration for what these three women and their families are doing to help other survivors of child sexual abuse and rape, and all of us who love them, to navigate the painful and shocking realities of what child sexual abuse and rape are, and what they can do to our children and families. I am pleased to be part of a project that, as the women suggest, has touched all of our lives, in one way or another, to a greater or lesser extent.
