Memory, masculinity and class


On the 28 march, 2015 the Daily Mail published an article that began in the following way:

Aristocrats ‘feel entitled to abuse people’

The article was about a member of the British aristocracy who was abused as a child within his family. He also went on to say that sexual abuse was a common occurrence at Eton college.

Are  upper-class men starting to identify as as survivors of sexual abuse?

 Changing definitions of masculinity?

Bet the Mail won’t suggest that

But are people more likely to remember abuse when articles like as this one are published?

And what was it  really like to be sent away to school when you were so young?
