Transcript of Sexual Discrimination and Violence

Title IX is a federal law that protects students from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive financial aid.
Sexual Discrimination, which includes sexual harassment and violence, interferes with students' right to receive an education free from discrimination and, in the case of sexual violence, is a crime.
Sex Discrimination
Title IX - Sexual
Discrimination & Violence

Sexual violence is illegal under the law and it is also prohibited at CSU Channel Islands.

Sexual Violence includes:
Rape, Acquaintance Rape, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking.
Sexual Violence
Non consensual sexual intercourse that may also involve the use of threat of force, violence, or immediate and unlawful injury.

Sexual Violence
Acquaintance Rape

Committed by an individual known to the victim. Includes a person the victim may have just met - at a party, introduced through a friend, via a social networking site.

Sexual Violence
What consent is:

Consent is willful and positive cooperation in an act that encompasses voluntary action and knowledge of the nature of the act involved. Consent is specific to each individual act; having previously consented to an act does not imply continued consent.

Sex and Consent
What consent is not:
Cooperation that is forced through direct or implied threats of violence is not consent, nor is cooperation that is solicited by fear
When a person is under the influence of alcohol or other drugs they are unable to give consent.

Sex and Consent
What consent is not:
Fear may prevent a victim from saying no and/or from fighting back.
Being unconscious means you can’t say no or fight back.
Being conscious but incapacitated by alcohol or drugs may also prevent a victim from saying no or fighting back.

Sex and Consent
Feeling empowered and equipped with the knowledge and skills to effectively assist in the prevention of sexual violence

Someone who sees a situation but may or may not know what to do, may think others will act or may be afraid to do something.

Bystander Intervention

Non Consensual
Where a person is incapable of giving consent;
Where it is accomplished against a person's will by means of force, violence or fear;
Where a person is prevented from resisting by any intoxicating or controlled substance;
Where a person is unconscious;
Where the act is accomplished against the victim's will by threatening to retaliate in the future.
Sexual Violence
Sexual Assault
A form of Sexual Violence and is an attempt, coupled with the ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another because of that person's gender or sex.

Domestic Violence
It is illegal to commit an assault, battery or criminal threat against anyone. But if the alleged victim is your fiancé, spouse, cohabitant, or a dating partner, California domestic violence laws make the allegation much more serious.

Dating Violence
Dating Violence is violence committed by a person who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim

Dating violence differs from domestic violence in that a romantic or intimate relationship is required.

California’s stalking laws are considered among the toughest and most comprehensive in the nation. Stalking, in its simplest form, is repeatedly following, harassing and/or threatening another person to the point where that individual fears for his/her safety or the safety of his/her family and causes the individual to suffer substantial emotional distress.

Just because a person didn’t say ‘no’ and/or didn’t fight back, does not mean that the incident was consensual.

Bystander Intervention
See something – say something!

Bystander intervention can be something as small as a student telling another that his/her sexist language is offensive or as great as another student contacting an RA, or the police.
