Abstract

Online sexual violence uses digital technology to facilitate virtual and face-to-face sexual crimes. Online sexual harassment, gender and sexuality-based harassment, cyberstalking, image-based sexual exploitation, and using trains to pressure victims into unwanted sexual actions are examples. Some cases of cyber attention go unreported, and most reported cases are left unreported due to current legislation. Sexual Violence Crime Law aims to provide legal protection from all forms of sexuality and legal freedom. The statute specifies sexual violence. This law prohibits sexual conduct in different ways, holds parties accountable, protects victims, and restores victims' rights. All parties must prepare this law with seriousness and attention, and it must be enforced with a sense of justice in society and legal certainty for victims. The term "sexual violence in the digital age" describes a pattern of conduct in which people use the internet to commission sexually violent acts against others, both in the virtual and real worlds. Online sexual harassment, harassment based on gender or sexual orientation, cyberstalking, sexual exploitation through images, and forcing people to engage in sexual acts on trains are all examples of this type of activity. This article reflects the present state of Indonesian law regarding preventing and eliminating sexual abuse via online/digital methods.
