09/02/24 - Today César Vidal will interview Amy Neustein, Ph.D., Boston University, Department: Sociology, Specialty: Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis.
Her remarkable activism in child sexual abuse (CSA) began in 1986 when her six-year-old daughter reported being sexually abused by her divorced father. Amy discovered to her horror that, as a result of the report, her daughter was removed from sole custody and placed with her ex-husband.
Amy discovered that many other mothers across the country were having the same experience with the family courts.
She organized these "protective mothers" into a national movement. She founded HURT (Help Us Regain The Children), a legal research and advocacy center, to inspire social change by pressuring state and federal legislators to investigate problems in the family court system.
