Sexual violence is any sexual act that is perpetrated against someone’s will. It encompasses a range of offenses, including a completed non-consensual sex act (rape), an attempted non-consensual sex act, abusive sexual contact (unwanted touching), and non-contact sexual abuse (threatened sexual violence, exhibitionism, verbal sexual harassment). All of these involve victims who do not consent, or who are unable to consent or refuse to allow the act.
