Was I Assaulted? What is Sexual Assault?
Sexual assault is crime. It is an act in which a person intentionally sexually touches another person without that person’s consent, coerces, or physically forces a person to engage in a sexual act against his or her will. The National Center for Victims of Crime states:
Sexual assault takes many forms including attacks such as rape or attempted rape, as well as any unwanted sexual contact or threats. Locking the doors and refusing to let you leave a car is kidnapping. Usually a sexual assault occurs when someone touches any part of another person’s body in a sexual way, on top of clothing or under clothing without that person’s consent.
You may have been physically injured, but it is more common that your attacker used only enough force to subdue you. Victims often state feeling as if they were in a catatonic state and unable to move during the assault. The reactions of fight, flight or freeze are real. Failure or inability to say “no” is never, ever consent. You did what you had to do to survive in that moment.

Women Are Assaulted After Drinking
The consequences of drinking and driving affect lives. One of the primary reasons why people call Uber and Lyft is to avoid driving while intoxicated. Ridesharing companies encourage people to call them if they have been drinking, and advertise themselves as a safe alternative to driving after going out with friends and drinking. Unfortunately, after making the right choice to call Uber or Lyft, they are taken advantage of by drivers that sexually assault them because the women may have been impaired by alcohol or other drugs. The only thing you should worry about after a night out on the town is a hangover, not a sexual assault. This despicable behavior by Uber and Lyft drivers is wrong and unlawful.
