Types of Sexual Violence

Sexual Exploitation

Occurs when an individual takes non-consensual or abusive sexual advantage of another for the taker’s advantage or benefit, or to benefit or advantage anyone other than the one being exploited, and that does not otherwise constitute one of the other sexual misconduct offenses.

Sexual Harassment

Unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature or that is sex- or gender-based and is also based on power differentials; it also results in the creation of a hostile environment or in retaliation.
