Sexual Trauma Resource Center

Sexual assault can (and does) happen to anyone, and the offender is often someone that the survivor knows. Research shows that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are likely to be sexually abused by their 18th birthdays, and 1 in 5 women are likely to be sexually assaulted, stalked, or experience domestic violence in their lifetime.

We define sexual assault as any act committed against a person's will by force, coercion, or trickery that is of a sexual nature. Sexual assault includes rape, child sexual abuse, marital rape, attempted rape, incest, sexual harassment, human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and indecent exposure. Sexual assault is a crime used to control, dominate, and humiliate. The offender, not the victim, is always at fault.
