Why Is This Important?
Sexual violence is sexual activity when consent is not obtained or freely given. Sexual violence impacts every community, gender, sexual orientation and race ethnicity. The perpetrator of sexual violence is usually someone known to the victim. Consequences of sexual violence can be physical, like bruising and genital injuries, and psychological, such as depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts. The consequences may also be chronic including post-traumatic stress disorder and recurring health issues. Sexual violence has been linked to negative health behaviors for survivors such as smoking, alcohol abuse, drug use and risky sexual activity.
