What is Sexual Assault?

Sexual Assault occurs when a person is forced or manipulated into unwanted sexual activity. It can include failed attempts and does not always involve force or threats. 

There are many types of sexual violence including rape, child sexual abuse, and can even occur between intimate partners.
