Please note:

  • Female pronouns are used to refer to the victim population. This decision reflects the fact that the majority of victims are female. No intent was made to exclude application to male victims.
  • The word victim is used in this document rather than survivor because many victims, in the time frame immediately following a sexual assault, may recognize the fact that they were victimized, may feel like a victim, and may not yet have moved to survivor status.
