Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

Subject: Sexual Assault Awareness Month - April 2017
Sexual violence consists of a range of unacceptable behaviors, including rape, incest, molestation, date and acquaintance rape, statutory rape, marital or partner rape, ritual abuse, sexual exploitation, forced prostitution, indecent sexual contact, sexual harassment, exhibitionism and voyeurism.

One in five girls and one in six boys will be sexually assaulted by 18 years of age.

Therefore, in the near future, I will be introducing a Resolution designating the month of April as “Sexual Assault Awareness Month” in Pennsylvania.

Introduced as HR134
