One in five children will be sexually assaulted before their 18th birthday. That's a schocking statistic.

This week is National Child's Protection Week and today is a day to "lift the cone of silence" that surrounds child sexual assault and increase the understanding of the difficult issue.

It's the 17th annual Bravehearts White Balloon Day. Jill had a chat with Carol Ronkin who is a Criminologist with Bravehearts.
