Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. Falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forcible sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling, and attempted rape.
The main issue that we are seeing is the shaming of woman for what sexual assaulter is to blame for. Society is blaming the crime on the victims, and as a result, more women keep it a secret and extremely effected, physically and emotionally.
Research says that 1 in 5 women in college are sexually assaulted, and that's not taking into account the amount of women who don't tell anyone.
I chose this topic because it is something that is very close to me, and I want to spread more knowledge about it. People don't know that much about rape and how much it effects way too many people. I plan on arguing my point that it is not the Woman's fault, no matter what society has to say. I want to show people how big of a problem this is.
