Sexual Assault

By on April 15, 2013

Sometimes men can overstep the boundaries without ever intending to do so but overstep nevertheless. When it comes to sex and violence, there has to be a zero tolerance for any level of assault; Male or female.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. Falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forcible sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling, and attempted rape. Guys should know when ‘good natured flirting’ is way takes a turn, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I touch others in an unwanted or aggressive manner?
  • Do I make profane, sexually explicit, or vulgar comments?
  • Do I make women or others uncomfortable?
  • Have I received any feedback about my personal conduct?

Sexual assault is everyone’s issue, whether in the workplace or at home. An April 2011 report from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center estimates the cost of rape alone to be over 120 billion a year- that includes child sexual abuse.

Statistics underestimate the problem because many victims do not tell the police, family, or friends about the violence. Sexual violence is any sexual activity where consent is not freely given. This includes completed or attempted sex acts that are against the victim’s will or involve a victim who is unable to consent.

Sexual violence is a very serious public health problem that affects millions of women and men. In the United States, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men have been raped in their lifetime and nearly 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men have experienced other forms of sexual violence at some point in their lives.

Sexual violence can be committed by anyone:

  • A current or former intimate partner
  • A family member
  • A person in position of power or trust
  • A friend or acquaintance
  • A stranger, or someone known only by sight
