UNE has a zero tolerance approach to sexual harassment & sexual assault.
Find out how and when to report.
If you haven’t consented to sexual activity, you have a legal right to take action and you
can go to the police and report the sexual assault or rape as a crime.
Nope. Most sexual offenders are known to the victim. Typically, a relative, partner, friend or peer. It can happen in the victim’s (or the offenders) home at day or night.
Forcing or coercing someone to have sex when they don’t want to is sexual assault, regardless of the relationship between the perpetrator and victim.
Consent needs to be sought each and every time.
No one asks or deserves to be sexually assaulted, and dressing to feel comfortable or attractive does not suggest otherwise. Perpetrators are responsible for their own actions.
Women, men and people with other gender identities can be sexually assaulted by someone of the same or different gender, by use of an object or Hand.
We all react differently to high-stress situations. Some people fight or flight, while others freeze up and withdraw. Many victims become paralysed with fear, which means they are unable to speak to speak-up or fight back.
Remember, the absence of a clear and enthusiastic yes is a no.
