What is Sexual Violence?

Sexual violence refers to sexual activity where consent is not obtained or freely given.  It occurs any time a person is forced, coerced or manipulated into any unwanted sexual activity. The range of sexual violence includes:
  • Rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Incest
  • Sexual exploitation
  • Unwanted or inappropriate sexual contact
  • Sexual harassment
  • Exposure
  • Threats
  • Stalking/Cyberstalking
  • Peeping
Sexual violence is a crime.  It is motivated by the need to control, humiliate, or harm.  Perpetrators of sexual violence use sex as a weapon to dominate others.  Most survivors of sexual violence knew their perpetrators before the assault. For more information please contact  info@casa-sedalia.org.
