A new law proposal have been made to the Parliament in France which will distinguish sexual abuse and rape of adults and children (15 years old and younger).
In the French law, sexual abuse and rape are established only when the facts are proven and also when the victims have clearly said no. There was no recognition of the fact that children do not have the same type of response as adults and are often manipulated by family members. This is a major change of law which hopefully will help to condemn more agressors.
The other change is the validation of the particular destructive consequence of the incest. The word will be written for the first time in our criminal code and this is breaking a strong taboo in our society.
The law will be discussed in the next few weeks.
I will keep you posted about the results.
