Sexual assault is a crime that affects people of all ages, sexual orientations, religions, genders, socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels. A sexual assault is sexual activity without the explicit consent of the other individual involved. It includes any forced or unwanted touching of an intimate part of the body under or over clothing. Someone is sexually assaulted every two minutes in the United States, with an estimated one in five women, and one in 71 men experiencing sexual assault in their lifetime.
Sexual assault is a sexual act that is completed or attempted against a victim’s will or at a time when the victim is not able to consent due to age, illness, disability, or the influence of drugs or alcohol. The act may involve actual or threatened physical force, use of weapons, coercion, intimidation or pressure.
