For individuals who have experienced sexual misconduct

What is sexual misconduct?

Sexual misconduct is used here as an umbrella term for all behavior that is sexual in nature and crosses the boundaries of another person. It refers to any sexual conduct that is unwelcome and without consent. It is therefore that we will sometimes also refer to it as “unwanted sexual behavior”.
