What is Sexual Assault?

 

Sexual assault is a sexual act that is unwanted, and that there is no consent that has been given in which a person is coerced, forced or threatened to do against their will or not able to give consent to the activity.

 

The activity may include the following:


  • the use of physical force
  • manipulation into agreeing
  • threat
  • taking advantage of the other person's voluntary intoxication
  • the use of coercion
  • incapacitation to give consent or causing the other person's intoxication (usually through using alcohol or drugs)

Sexual assault is a type of sexual violence that can include non-consensual and unwanted sexual behaviour. This could be perpetrated by a complete stranger or by someone known by the victim.
