Have you experienced sexual abuse, assault or harassment? Reach out to a sexual abuse hotline in Manitoba, Canada today for private, confidential support

Regardless of whether you're a woman, man or child in Manitoba, Canada, if someone has used coercion, power or force to make you engage in unwanted sexual activity, you were a victim of sexual abuse. Sexual abuse is a form of sexual violence, which is any sexual activity without consent. Other forms of sexual violence are sexual assault, such as rape and unwanted touching, and sexual harassment, which is unwelcome sexual behavior.

If you are a victim of sexual violence, talking about your experience with people who understand can help you recover. Seek free help from 10 sexual abuse, assault and harassment hotlines in Manitoba, Canada if you face:

Examples of sexual violence:

  • An organ or an object being put into your vagina (rape), or anus or mouth (sodomy), without your consent
  • Rape by more than one person (gang rape) or rape by the same person over a period of time (serial rape)
  • Catcalls and whistles that make you feel uncomfortable or objectified
  • Sexual abuse or assault from someone in your family (incest)
  • Being kissed or touched without your consent or being made, by coercion or force, to touch or kiss someone
  • Being exposed to a violent, hurtful sexual act without your permission
  • Being forced or coerced to have sex without protection from sexually transmitted diseases
  • Being spoken to in a sexual way that you find offensive or degrading

Effects of sexual violence:

  • Feeling dirty, damaged, and broken
  • Feeling unsafe and scared that it would happen again
  • Minimizing the abuse as not being as severe as someone else’s
  • Feeling guilty about the sexual abuse
  • Not being able to fall or stay asleep
  • Losing trust in people in general
  • Engaging in self-harm or self-mutilation
  • Changes (either loss or increase) in your appetite

As a victim of sexual violence you could be feeling furious, desperate, revengeful, hopeless, and empty, all at the same time. This is a perfectly normal response to such a traumatizing event.

Coping with the trauma of sexual violence can be even harder if you are trying to do it on your own. There is no right or wrong way to recover from the abuse. However, having someone to talk to in Manitoba, Canada can make the process easier.

If you feel like you might need support with your experience of sexual violence, try reaching out to a hotline in Manitoba, Canada. It's free and confidential.
