Rehtaeh Parsons ended her life on the 7th of April, 2013. She was only 17.
Her death followed a gang sexual assault and months of horrific victim blaming and depression. None of the four young men who raped Rehtaeh were held accountable for their actions despite photographing the assault and bragging about what happened that November night in 2011.
Rehtaeh’s story is not unique. Having spoken to many high schools students since her death I would say there is a Rehtaeh Parsons in every school in the country.
