The story of Daisy’s Law to be dramatised by Me+You

I Am RuthMe+You Productions has optioned the life rights to the true story of Daisy, whose personal campaign led to the creation of a law allowing children born from rape to be recognised as victims. 


Krishnendu Majumdar and Richard Yee of Me+You (whose recent credits include I Am Ruth, pictured) are working closely with the woman known as Daisy (her identity is still protected for legal reasons) on the drama, that has the working title Kin. 

The mini-series will cover the true story of Daisy, an adopted woman who campaigned for justice for herself and her mother – who was raped as a 13-year-old – and who fought to secure the prosecution of her birth father. 

Emma Dennis-Edwards, known for her school rape-culture drama Consent for Channel 4, is writing Kin. She has also penned an episode of Candice Carty-Williams’ BBC drama series Champion.

Majumdar said: “Daisy is a truly inspirational woman. I don’t think people will believe that she actually tracked down and went to visit her birth father for the first time. She rang the bell and they talked inside his home for 45 minutes. It is jaw-dropping. I’ve been amazed by her eloquence and resilience. 

“We are really excited about working with Emma and Daisy on Kin. We are passionate about telling stories that matter, stories that say something about society. We feel privileged Daisy has trusted us to tell this extraordinary story about how one woman accepted her devastating origins and found the courage to fight for justice. It’s about resilience, family and knowing who you are.”
