Abstract

The regulation on sexual violence in the Criminal Code is limited to rape and obscene acts. In fact, forms of sexual violence are becoming more varied. The purpose of this study is to analyze and evaluate the formulation of rape and obscene act as regulated in the Criminal Code. This study shows that the form of rape in marriage is part of sexual violence as well as forced oral and anal sex and other means are. Other acts that constitute sexual violence are sexual harassment and sexual violence based on gender. This study concludes that the regulation of sexual violence in the Criminal Code does not accommodate other forms of sexual violence. It is necessary to expand the concept of sexual violence in the future formulation of the Criminal Code
