What is Sexual Assault?

Sexual assault is a crime of power and control. It involves sexual contact or behavior that occurs without consent.

Unwanted contact or behavior can include:
        • touching, kissing, fondling
        • penetration of the mouth, vagina, or anus with a finger, penis, or object

Sexual assault can also include the use of force. Force does not always have to be of a physical nature, it can also be expressed through:

        • coercion
        • manipulation
        • intimidation
        • the use of drugs or alochol

 

Over 90% of sexual assaults are perpetrated by someone the victim knows such as a classmate, friend, relative, or a partner or ex-partner.

 

Sexual assault can happen to anyone regardless of appearance, age, race, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, relationship/marital status, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, etc.


 

RAPE IS NEVER THE SURVIVOR'S FAULT
PERPETRATORS ARE 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS
