Irish videographer and actress, Emily Susan Ryan, has put together a short film for Denim Day today, otherwise known as Rape Awareness Day.
The film, called After, follows a young woman who has been raped and shows how she deals with the attack on her own.
At the end of the video, statistics flash onto the screen, including one that says 98% of rapists will never spend a day in jail.
If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, raped, or subjected to domestic violence, you can contact one of the following organisations for help:
