Thank you for this well written, researched piece. I was reluctant to read it, to be honest, because the topic is so disturbing. You bring up many important points that all of us should think about. These girls are victims and need to be treated as such, rather than blamed and shamed. I personally think Ghislaine Maxwell should be punished for her role in exploiting under age girls, make an example of her. She could have helped them; she chose to hurt them. And every single man who perpetrated the abuse should be exposed and held accountable.
