Abstract:  ADVOKID describes itself as a "frankly pro-child newsletter designed for adult visionaries who believe in and work for the prevention of child sexual abuse." It is published by Outreach Child Abuse Prevention and Education, a non-profit organization founded in 1983 to help prevent and end child sexual abuse which says its goal "is to empower children and work towards an abuse free childhood for all." The June 1987 issue contains a report on a program in which 40 girls between the ages of 10 and 14 participated, with excerpts of some of the questions asked and answers given. Also included is a report on a recent well-publicized custody case, and a book review of a book dealing with women, sexuality, and psychiatry.
