Both males and females can be sexually violated, irrespective of age, class or status. If a sexual act is performed on you without your consent, it is a violation of your person and it is a criminal offense punishable under the law. In most instances of sexual violence, the perpetrators/abusers are known by the victims and vise versa. As long as you did not consent to the act, even if you know the perpetrator in person, be it a spouse,
a former/current intimate partner, a family member, a friend, a colleague, an authority figure or an acquaintance; even if you could not fight back or scream, at the time of the incident, if you were drunk, taking drugs, given drugs or unconscious, it is criminal for anyone to sexually violate you. We advise that you report all cases of sexual violence to the police for immediate action – especially rape.
