What is Sexual Violence: it is any sexual attempt or act committed against someone without their consent; unwanted sexual advances; and the use of coercion to have a person submit to unwanted sex.
MUJER knows that sexual violence is a traumatic and an emotionally devastating experience that can happen to children, women, and men at any age. It may make you wonder if you’ll ever recover. It can make you feel alone and frightened. It can make you feel let down by your community and the people you trust. It forces you to make difficult decisions about whether you want to tell someone, and if you decide to, who to tell, and whether to report the crime to the police. It can leave you with many questions about your medical needs, your rights, and what options are available to you. It can make you feel isolated and powerless.
You are not alone! It's Not Your Fault
