What is domestic violence?

Domestic Violence is the continuous pervasive use of threats, intimidation, coercion and manipulation through privilege and violence (physical/sexual/emotional) to instill fear in the partner of intimate relationship. It is a form of control over another person.



What is sexual assault?

Sexual assault (or sexual abuse) is any type of sexual activity that one does not agree to, including:
inappropriate touching, vaginal, anal, or oral penetration, sexual intercourse without consent, rape or attempted rape, or child molestation.
Sexual assault can be verbal, visual, or anything that forces a person to join in unwanted sexual contact or attention. Examples of this are voyeurism (when someone watches private sexual acts), exhibitionism (when someone exposes him/herself in public), incest (sexual contact between family members), and sexual harassment. It can happen in different situations, by a stranger in an isolated place, on a date, or in the home by someone you know.
