Gender-based violence is rooted in and intensified by other forms of discrimination such as racism, colonialism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism and poverty.These attitudes send messages that men are more important than women and gender minorities.People committing sexual violence are usually known to the person - a parent, partner, date, friend, acquaintance, caregiver, professional, teacher, co-worker, boss, coach, clergy or a person in a position of trust.
It is any forced or unwanted sexual contact or behaviour that happens without consent.
The Sexual Exploitation Working Group (SEWG) is an Edmonton-based leadership group collaborating to create awareness of sexual exploitation and its causes and impacts.
The SEWG is a collaborative of community partners, law enforcement, municipal and provincial government, and REACH Edmonton, which work to: Any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability, differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the sexual exploitation of another.” The SEWG is concerned for those who are vulnerable to sexual exploitation (including sex trafficking) due to age, financial desperation, migration, homelessness, prior childhood abuse or neglect, mental or physical health conditions, intergenerational trauma, addictions or any other circumstance that contributes to vulnerability.

The statistics are sobering: one in four North American women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime, and only six out of every 100 sex crimes are reported to the police (source: Sex Assault.ca) Though a majority of sexual assaults in Canada are committed by men against women and children, sexual violence can be experienced by anyone - people in same sex relationships, transgendered people and men.
