Sexual abuse can be said to occur when one person forces someone else to engage in non-consensual sexual activity, engages in harassment or issues threats of a sexual nature. It can also include any unwanted sexual activity or remark that makes a person feel uncomfortable or violated. Sexual abuse can be an isolated event or ongoing, and it can happen to anyone.
