Sexual Violence: Justice
and Legal Protection for Victims

Sexual violence against children is an extraordinary crime. That is why Indonesia amended the Child Protection Act through Law (No). 35/2014, which regulates the protection of children from sexual violence. Data released by the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection from January to July 2020 showed 2,556 children were victims of sexual violence. Data released by Komnas Perempuan in 2020 also states that 55% cases of violence experienced by women and girls are sexual violence cases.
