Paula Brave Little Girl – Super Hero – Warrior (A Tale of Sibling Sexual Violence)

One survivor’s struggles with past sibling sexual violence…

In the fall of 1974, at 7 years old, I found myself in the Emergency Room (ER) with my parents. I was there because my friend’s mother called my Mom concerned because I showed up at their house with blood running down my legs from my groin area. At 7 years old, I did not understand what or how this could happen. I first noticed the blood as I climbed on to a swing so I blamed the swing. At that time, I was not able to connect what my 14 year old brother did to me earlier that day was the real cause.

There are also numerous resources and references available on the subject of sibling sexual violence.
