Breaking Their Will: Shedding Light on Religious Child Maltreatment

Award winning journalist and former NPR reporter Janet Heimlich examines religiously motivated child abuse and neglect in her new book Breaking Their Will: Shedding Light on Religious Child Maltreatment.

Examples of religious child maltreatment include beating children based on  beliefs about “biblical chastisement,” refusing to report abuse to protect a faith community, and denying children need medical care due to beliefs about faith healing. Children in harmful religious cultures also suffering emotionally.

Janet Hemlich will be speaking 9am on Friday (7/25) as part of the The International Symposia on Genital Autonomy and Children’s Rights Conference at The University of Colorado, Boulder.
