Over the weekend the press coverage of the savile abuse scandal has turned on a great child abuse campaigner. Esther rantzen has been vilified in some quarters of the gutter press.
Esther who set up Childline in the mid 80’s, has been tireless in her work helping child abuse victims/survivors. I ask one question. If you were a junior researcher, would you report a rumour about one of the biggest stars on tv.
I myself wouldn’t as who would you believe. Mr savile was very careful in hiding what he did. As with all abusers he planted the shame in the mind of his victims. “Don’t tell as no one would believe you” does this sound familiar.
These brave women and men now coming forward are coming out of the shame.
Please stand by the one person who believes all children.
