Unfortunately, sexual violence can come in many forms. In order to better understand the wide range of personal violences that can occur, I have included definitions of different types of rape and sexual violence, and other kinds of violence that often arise hand-in-hand with sexual violence.
Rape victims may be forced through threats or physical means. In about 8 out of 10 rapes, no weapon is used other than physical force. Anyone may be a victim of rape: women, men or children, straight or gay
Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that affects an individual's work or school performance.
Sexual violence of children often includes incest as a subset of this form of sexual violence. While there is a substantial amount of overlap in the two types of violence.
