What is domestic violence?
Domestic violence (also known as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, or intimate partner
violence) occurs when an individual attempts to physically or psychologically dominate another.
Domestic violence often refers to violence against a spouse (spousal abuse) but can also
include violence against a non-married intimate partner or co-habitant. Domestic violence
occurs in all cultures. People of all races, ethnicities, religions, sexes and classes can be
affected by domestic violence. Domestic violence is perpetrated by both men and women.
Domestic violence has many forms, including physical violence, sexual abuse, emotional
abuse, coercive control, intimidation, economic deprivation and threats of violence. Violence can
be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse
(unwanted or forced sexual activity) and stalking.
What is sexual assault?
According to the U.S. government’s office on women’s health, sexual assault and abuse is any
type of sexual activity that you do not agree to, including inappropriate touching, vaginal, anal or
oral penetration, sexual intercourse that you say no to, rape, attempted rape or molestation.
Sexual assault can be verbal, visual or anything that forces a person to join in unwanted sexual
contact or attention. Examples of this are voyeurism (when someone watches private sexual
acts), exhibitionism (when someone exposes him/herself in public), incest (sexual contact
between family members) and sexual harassment. It can happen in different situations, by a
stranger in an isolated place, on a date or in the home by someone you know.
