This documentary examines the impact of sexual assault on the lives of female survivors, their families, and their communities. Produced by husband-and-wife team Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk in the United States, the film demonstrates how media and social media can exacerbate the problems survivors confront, including being re-victimized and vilified. For young people, this film raises awareness about how everyday actions can have severe consequences on their lives and on other people.

“Audrie & Daisy” is a compelling story that invites critical reflection on one’s personal experiences and how one engages in their communities. The documentary can be used in many contexts as a conversation starter and reflection piece about healthy relationships, sexual consent, social norms, and community advocacy.
