Sexual violence is a broad term which includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, street harassment, relationship violence, child sexual abuse and stalking. While each of these types of violence may look different, they all involve an attack on a person’s sense of self, their sexuality, their body and/or their feeling of safety. It can happen to anyone of any gender and of any sexual orientation.
It is important to remember that all forms of sexual violence are interconnected and equally important. All types of sexual violence can have a profound impact on an individual, and they all contribute to a rape-prone world.
