BBC Three announces Zara McDermott: Revenge Porn
Revenge porn - the sharing of explicit or sexual images or videos without consent - is raging practically unchecked in the UK. Cases reported to police have more than doubled in the last four years, yet from 2017-18 only seven percent of reports resulted in a charge. A recent study found nearly 10 percent of people in the UK have experienced this invasive and deeply personal humiliation. Nearly all the victims are women.
Zara is ready to confront her past and move forward with her life.
She wants to understand the motivation behind sharing such photos and make a difference for the thousands of young people across the country who are being so publicly victimised.
