Sexual Assault

(Section under construction: come back later to see updated information!)
Sexual Assault happens when any kind of sexual contact or sexual act is committed without consent or the ability to give consent. While we often associate sexual assault with sex, it can occur in a variety of other ways.
Examples of Sexual Assault:
  • Rape: forced sex (penetrative and/or oral)
  • Attempted Rape
  • Flashing
  • Unwanted fondling or touching (i.e. molestation)
