Violence Against Women – Definitions of:
Acts of sexual violence are serious problems on college and university campuses. Atlantis University prohibits the crimes of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. On March 7, 2013, President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) (Pub. Law 113-4). The HEA defines the new crime categories of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking in accordance with section 40002(a) of the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 as follows:
- “Domestic violence” means a “felony or misdemeanor crime of violence committed by:
- A current or former spouse or intimate partner of the victim,
- A person with whom the victim shares a child in common,
- A person who is cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse or intimate partner,
- A person similarly situated to a spouse of the victim under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction receiving grant monies [under the VAWA],
- Any other person against an adult or youth victim who is protected from that person’s acts under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction”
- “Dating violence” means “violence committed by a person:
- Who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim; and
- Where the existence of such a relationship shall be determined based on a consideration of the following factors:
- The length of the relationship;
- The type of the relationship; and
- The frequency of interactions between the people involved in the relationship.”
- “Sexual Assault” means any unwanted and nonconsensual sexual contact that involved either sexual battery or rape; where “sexual battery” is defined as any unwanted and nonconsensual sexual contact that involves forced touching of a sexual nature, not involving penetration. This could include forced kissing, touching, grabbing, or fondling of sexual body parts. And “Rape” is defined as any unwanted and nonconsensual sexual contact that involves a penetrative act, including oral sex, anal sex, sexual intercourse, or sexual penetration with a finger or object. Sexual battery and rape are mutually exclusive categories (e.g., a victim or a sexual victimization incident would be counted as one or the other, not both). In all instances, the definition of “consent and nonconsensual”, in reference to sexual activity, refers to sexual contact that the person did not want to happen = unwanted sexual contact.a. “Consent” means intelligent, knowing, and voluntary consent and does not include coerced submission.a. “Consent” shall not be deemed or construed to mean the failure by the alleged victim to offer physical resistance to the offender. Florida Statutes § 794.011.
- “Stalking” means “engaging in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to:
- Fear for his or her safety or the safety of others; or
- Suffer substantial emotional distress.”
