Rape is a forced, unwanted sexual intercourse. Rape, also called sexual assault can happen to both men and women of any age.

Rape is about power, using actual force or violence — or the threat of it — to take control over another human being.

No matter how it happened, rape is frightening and traumatizing. Care, healing and a journey of restoration is endeavored by the survivor.
