Jill Starishevsky is a prosecutor of child abuse and sex crimes in New York City, and the author of My Body Belongs To Me, a book for children that is a tool for parents to talk about child sexual abuse prevention. "My goal is to make the discussion of child sexual abuse prevention as basic as teaching your child how to cross the street. This means that it must be taught in the home and reinforced in the schools,” Ms. Starishevsky said. The Ministry of Education in Italy seeks to translate My Body Belongs to Me to and place it in the school system.
4th ITALIAN NATIONAL DAY AGAINST PEDOPHILIA AND PEDOPORNOGRAPHY takes place on May 4 in Rome, Italy.

Objective of the event: will be that of examining the role and responsibilities of public institutions, the school system, the Church and the family in giving birth to an authentic culture of dignity and respect for the human rights of children - focusing on three key words: awareness, prevention and training.
