Find information on a number of topics.

What is sexual assault?

Sexual assault is any unwanted sexual contact without voluntary consent. As this definition of sexual assault indicates, consent must be voluntary. Consent must also be ongoing, active, and specific to each person and action involved. Consent must come from someone capable of consenting.

85% of the time people are sexually assaulted by someone that they know. Being sexually assaulted by someone that you know may feel confusing. You are not alone. What happened to you is not your fault.
