What is Sexual Assault?
According to SMC’s Sexual Assault & Sexual Misconduct Policy…
Sexual assault is defined as engaging in sexual intercourse with
any person
without that person's
consent
According to RAINN*, 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men will experience sexual assault in their lifetime but...

College age women are 4 times more likely to experience assault than women in other age groups...

And the perpetrators are not strangers. 80-90% of the time, it is a friend, date, ex partner, co-worker, acquaintance, partner, or other known person

Rape Culture
Rape culture is a concept that links rape and sexual violence to the culture of a society, and in which prevalent attitudes and practices normalize, excuse, tolerate, and even condone rape
In a rape culture, sexual coercion seem so normal
that people believe that rape is inevitable.

Rather than viewing the culture of rape as a problem to change, people in a rape culture think about the persistence of rape as “just the way things are.”
