Sexual assault is a violent act using power and control. It is a continuum of violence which includes rape, incest, date and acquaintance rape, marital and partner rape, sexual harassment and voyeurism.
Relationship violence is when in an intimate relationship, one or both partners experiences physical, emotional or sexual abuse. Stalking is also a form of relationship violence.
Healthy relationships should have trust and mutual respect. Sexual contact should only be made when clear consent is given by both partners.
