Sexual violence, or sexual assault/abuse, refers to any type of unwanted sexual contact – including pressuring someone to do something sexually they don’t want to do or don’t consent to. It can also refer to behavior that impacts a person’s ability to control their sexual activity or the circumstances in which sexual activity occurs, like restricting access to birth control and condoms, or sexual activity with someone who is very drunk, drugged, or unconscious.
It’s important to remember that no matter the circumstance, sexual violence is never the victim’s fault. Everyone has the right to decide what they do or don’t want to do sexually.
