Not the only solution, but a very important one
Thankfully, we live in a time when child abuse has been brought to the forefront, allowing us to begin fighting this terrible reality in our midst.
Until now, emphasis has been on teaching children their rights to privacy, that their bodies belong to them and no one else. Predators are being exposed, enabling parents to protect their children and giving victims a chance to heal and move on. Certainly, the risk of being exposed also serves as a deterrence for would be predators.
However, I do believe that not enough emphasis has been put on teaching a very simple halachic concept that our rabbis have instituted thousands of years ago to protect girls and women, and that is yichud. The laws of yichud cannot protect male victims of sexual abuse, but they certainly can protect female victims. Amazingly, the laws of yichud apply to a male being alone with the girl from the age of three!
In most cases where a male abused a girl over the age of three, there was a breach of hilchos yichud.
Yes, hilchos yichud will not protect a girl from her father, brother or grandfather, but it would protect her from other family members including uncles and cousins, and certainly from any other male in her community.
Many girls are going to camps to work as counselors etc.,
Does your daughter know the laws of yichud? Does she know that she is not allowed to be alone with a man, this includes driving on isolated roads, or even being in an unlocked room where noone would enter without knocking!
This article is definitely not an effort to blame victims, it is to spread awareness of the amazing empowerment that halacha has given to women.
