Catherine Daisy Coleman (March 30, 1997 – August 4, 2020) was an American women's rights activist. Her experience of sexual assault at the age of 14 was featured in the 2016 documentary movie Audrie & Daisy.

Coleman co-founded the nonprofit organization, SafeBAE aimed at preventing sexual assault in schools.

In January 2012, Matthew Barnett, 17, was arrested for the rape and sexual assault of Coleman, a 14-year-old girl.[1] However, the case was dropped by the county prosecutor. Many believe it was dropped because Barnett's grandfather was state representative Rex Barnett.[2][3]

Coleman died by suicide on August 4, 2020 at the age of 23.[4][5][6]
