Sexual abuse in Canadian junior hockey

30 November 2005

Laura Robinson is the author of the book " Crossing the Line - Violence and sexual assaults in Canada's national sport". Her vital research  on sexual abuse in Canadian junior hockey was met with a deep and intellectual understanding outside the boarders of her home country Canada.

Laura Robinson is winner of the Play the Game Award and in this conference presentation from Play the Game 2005, she examins the relationship between military abuse and intimidation that found in sport, particularly through initiations.

She furthermore exposes a case in hockey that took even the most jaundiced by surprise in North America in 2004.
