Sexual Violence

Sexual violence is a non-legal all-encompassing term to note instances of nonconsensual unwanted sexual activity. This includes sexual harassment, stalking, unwanted touching, and sexual assault. Sexual violence can be visual, physical, and/or verbal. Visual sexual violence would include actions that are based on being seen or watched. For example, showing explicit photos to others without their consent.
