        Class & Culture

        Just as someone’s racial/ethnic identity, sexual orientation, age, or ability can make them a target for sexual violence, and pose obstacles toward accessing services, so too can a person’s economic class or standing within a particular cultural group. These can include service in the military, experience in the prison system, or affiliation with a religious community.
