Sexual violence knows no boundaries.
It does not discriminate based on gender, race, age, socio-economic status, or sexual orientation. Sexual violence can occur between strangers or more commonly between people who know each other.
YWCA Northeast Indiana is here to help with your emotional recovery.
What is Sexual Violence?
Sexual violence refers to any action that pressures or coerces someone to do something sexually they don’t want to do.
It can also refer to behavior that impacts a person’s ability to control their sexual activity or the circumstances in which sexual activity occurs, including oral sex, rape or restricting access to birth control and condoms.
• insist on unwanted kissing or touching
• perform unwanted rough or violent sexual activity
• rape or attempt to rape
• refuse to use condoms or restrict someone’s access to birth control
• keep someone from protecting themselves from sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
• have sexual contact with someone who is very drunk, drugged, unconscious, or otherwise unable to give a clear and informed “yes” or “no”
• threaten or pressure someone into unwanted sexual activity
If you see yourself in any of these statements, you may benefit from our sexual violence services.
