Sexual assault is any non-consensual sexual act or behavior.
This includes rape (by a person you know or do not know), being forced to participate in sexual acts which make you uncomfortable, being groped/grabbed, being called sexualized names, having your pictures distributed without your consent and feeling afraid to say no.

Sexual assault can take many different forms and be defined in different ways, but one thing remains the same: it’s never the victim’s fault.

Child Sex Abuse

When a perpetrator intentionally harms a minor physically, psychologically, sexually, or by acts of neglect, the crime is known as child abuse.

Sexual Assault of Men and Boys

Men and boys who have been sexually assaulted or abused may also face some additional challenges because of social attitudes and stereotypes about men and masculinity.

Intimate Partner Sexual Violence

A perpetrator can have any relationship to a victim, and that includes the role of an intimate partner.

Incest

Regardless of how the law defines incest, unwanted sexual contact from a family member can have a lasting effect on the survivor.

Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault

You may have heard the term “date rape drugs” to refer to substances that can aid a perpetrator in committing drug-facilitated sexual assault.
