Sexual Violence

Sexual violence refers to all types of coercive sexual acts or activity. While some forms of sexual violence are physical, others use emotional or psychological tactics. Rape and sexual assault should be always understood and framed as violence, not sex. 

Reporting on sexual violence means finding not only the right language but the context and sensitivity to communicate a trauma that is at once deeply personal yet also a matter of public policy; immediate and yet freighted with centuries of stigma, silence and suppression. These resources offer guidance on interviewing skills, and knowledge about victims, perpetrators, law and psychology.
