Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is any sexual contact without consent.  Sexual assault of any type is never the victim's fault.  No one asks or deserves to be sexually assaulted.  Aggressors use sexual violence as a weapon to control, humiliate, dominate and abuse their victims.  Sexual assault is not about sexual desire, intimacy or passion.

Sexual assault can include "date" and acquaintance rape, marital rape, stranger rape, sexual abuse, and sexual harassment.

Anybody can be sexually assaulted, regardless of gender, age, race, appearance, sexual orientation, education level, socioeconomic status, marital status or religious beliefs.
