NEW YORKAug.27, 2013—The Ms. Foundation for Women announced today that it will be leading the “Building a Movement to End Child Sexual Abuse” mini-track at the 2013 National Sexual Assault Conference Aug. 28-30 in Hollywood, Calif.

The conference is being hosted by The California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA), in partnership with the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. The mini-track will include five sessions led by the Ms. Foundation and its current and former grantees.

“One in four girls experiences child sexual abuse, which can have a lasting impact on girls and women throughout their lives,” said interim Program Officer, Safety, Natalie Sullivan. “The women’s movement has a long history of working to end gender-based sexual violence, and the Ms. Foundation’s focus on child sexual abuse prevention is at the core of such work.”
