Leaving school at 15 to work in menial jobs, Dr Taylor finally left home in her early twenties having been sexually abused by her father from age of 6 until her early twenties. Enduring trauma of two trials after her father was released on a technicality, Dr Taylor is only too familiar with treatment handed out to victims/survivors of child sexual abuse.
"The deeply entrenched and historical suspicion and bias directed at victim/survivors of child sexual abuse was directed at me with all its fury. My lack of formal education as a child; my preference to turn inwards in response to trauma, my deep love of animals and my lack of social skills and social life were used to portray me in a cruel way.
The price for speaking out also included complete rejection by my family and other relatives. I experienced homelessness and many levels of distress and fear that accompany this abuse. But I was determined to survive and rebuild. I am proud of what I have achieved and processes I developed, nurtured and put in place to achieve this." (extract from Dr Caroline Taylor's Speech, Heather Osland Fundraiser April 20, 2004)
