Your right to be protected from sexual violence
Your body is yours. You alone decide what to do with it. You can decide for yourself which physical touches you allow and which you do not, also in the family or with acquaintances.
If someone touches you against your will or forces you to sexual acts, he abuses you. In such cases, say "no", go away and talk about it - until you find someone who believes you and helps you to defend yourself.
Even looks and words can hurt. Abuse has many shapes and forms. If someone wants to force you to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable, fight back and say "no". You can become loud and unfriendly. Talk about it with another person you trust. Don't make it in a secret for yourself that makes you feel bad.
