Rehtaeh Anne Parsons

Rehtaeh Parsons ended her life on the 7th of April, 2013, following a gang sexual assault at a home located in Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia, Canada. None of the four males who raped her were held accountable for their actions despite photographing the assault and bragging about what they did to her.

You can visit Rehtaeh’s memorial Facebook page here – Angel Rehtaeh.

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.

Rehtaeh’s page is here.

Rehtaehs Police File: A-2016-07382

Update 14 Dec 2017: The Office of the Information Commissioner of Canada is now looking into the RCMP’s refusal to release her files.
