A woman who was abused by the leader of a child grooming gang in Rotherham and had his son has waived her right to anonymity to highlight the failings of the authorities.
Sammy Woodhouse first talked about her experience to The Times and her testimony was published in August 2013 under the false name Jessica as part of a campaign to expose a culture of silence surrounding the targeting and exploitation of white girls across England by groups of men, many of Pakistani heritage.
Her revelations helped to convict her abuser, Arshid Hussain, 40, who was jailed for 35 years in November, along with his three brothers and four other members of the Rotherham gang. She is now fighting for action to be taken against those who failed to help her.
