About Rape & Sexual Assault

Rape is unwanted sexual coercion against someone. It is about power and control and is not about sex. It is largely an underreported violent crime that harms anyone, regardless of age, sex, race, class, sexual orientation and disability. It affects everyone, including family and friends and the general community (http://kidshealth.org/teen/safety/safebasics/rape_what_to_do.html).
