AUDRIE & DAISY: THE FILM AND THE STORY OF TEEN SEXUAL ASSAULT
We read about it every week – a teenage girl sexually assaulted by classmates or neighbor boys, and what happens next is more horrible than the physical violence. What happens next in so many of these cases, is the girl is bullied, ridiculed, and slut shamed, and if she dares to report it to police, she is often the butt of community-wide derision, victim blaming, and campaigns to trivialize what happened and to discredit her.
In Delaney Henderson’s case, her rape became national news, a rap artist made a song out of it that even threatened her life, and she made the decision to use her experience to do some good. She not only reported her assault, she sued the rap artist, she started an organization to support victims like her, AND she was instrumental in making a new documentary featured on Netflix called Audrie & Daisy. The film is a testament to the girls who live through this experience and those who do not.
Join Delaney, Daisy and Jada Smith (who also appears in the film) as we talk about their experiences, the film, and the prevalence of sexual assault and its despicable follow up for teenage girls.
