Abstract/Summary This report presents the executive summary and recommendations from a pilot study exploring women's experiences of learning that their partner possessed child abuse material. Nine Australian women were interviewed, regarding how the offence was detected, their partners' initial reactions, the women's initial reactions, police responses, sentencing, impact on the family and relationships, reactions of friends, and the women's feelings of stigma, shame, and lack of support. Although this was a small scale study, the authors are confident in their concluding recommendations for research, policy and practice.
