In common with other Australian churches, the Anglican Church of Australia has been rightly shamed for its negligent response to sexual abuse perpetrated within its ranks. It has apologised profusely, and committed itself to preventing future abuse.

This study, by a prominent laywoman, lifts the veil on this hidden outcome, and pleads for a more caring, considered approach.
