Violence against Women and Health

Sexual violence is considered to be any behaviour of a sexual nature that is carried out without the other person’s consent. It includes conduct such as indecent exposure, obscene words, groping and rape. Although all genders can be affected, in most cases women are the victims and men the perpetrators. 

What we recommend after any situation in which you have been affected by sexual assault is first of all to tell someone about it. Share it your friends or anyone you feel you can trust. Next, go to a healthcare centre.
