Sexual Violence

Sexual violence means that someone experiences sexual activity that she or he did not consent to or did not want. If someone is being threatened, intimidated, forced, or pressured into sexual activity, then it is sexual violence. Consent cannot be given if a person is underage, drunk, high, unconscious, or physically or mentally incapacitated. A person can change her or his mind about sexual activity at any time and withdraw consent. (Adapted from “What is Sexual Violence?” Fact Sheet from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, 2010)
