What is Sexual Violence
Sexual violence is defined as: any sexual act, attempt to obtain a sexual act, unwanted sexual comments or advances, or acts to traffic, or otherwise directed, against a person’s sexuality using coercion, by any person regardless of their relationship to the victim, in any setting, including but not limited to home and work (World Health Organisation, 2002). All forms of sexual violence – psychological, economic, emotional, sexual and physical – come from the abuser’s desire for power and control over another individual.
Although every situation is unique, there are common factors involved. This workshop looks at the myths of sexual violence as well as exploring the following:
- The signs of sexual violence
- Why do abusers do what they do?
- Why do women stay with their abuser?
- The impact of abuse
