Sexual assault is an act of violence where sex is used as the weapon.  It is against the law!  Examples of sexual assault are:  rape, incest, child sexual assault, stalking and sexual harassment.  It happens in a relationship, marriage, family, a school, and workplace. 
 
A victim can be: a woman, a man, a daughter, a son, a sister, a brother, a friend, a child, a grandmother, or a grandfather.  It can be anyone!
 
A victim/survivor of sexual assault is not to be blamed for the action; it is the perpetrator who causes it and is responsible.
