Abstract: I performed a study in the summer of 2004 funded by the Kessinger Grant from the Department of Anthropology at Haverford College. I worked for a non profit organization in Islamabad, SAHIL, which has been working with the issue of child sexual abuse in Pakistan for the part seven years. Supervised by Ms. Manizeh Bano, the executive director, I carried out a social class comparative study examining social disparity in Pakistan and its effects on upper and lower class mothers’ awareness and attitude towards child sexual abuse. Using a piloted questionnaire I interviewed sixty two women from each sample and compiled and analyzed the data from the study. The purpose of this study was to see whether social class, education, status and financial status had any impact of the awareness/attitude of mothers towards child sexual abuse.
