Jennifer is still haunted by the memory of being gang raped and almost killed years ago. At her therapist's advice, she joins group therapy and meets similar women. She befriends one and they want more than just talk - justice/vengeance.
Joe Grant, a light-skinned African-African, heads to a small Southern town to investigate the lynching death of his brother. He draws the attention of a gorgeous heiress, then learns that she might have been involved in the murder.

The film follows Jennifer, a writer who is working on a new novel and needs to get out of the city to finish it. She rents a riverside cabin in upstate New York to work on her novel, attracting the attention of a number of rowdy male locals. They catch Jennifer one day and strip her naked for the village idiot (Matthew) and rape her. Jennifer is later attacked and raped a further two times by the four degenerates, and her novel is also destroyed. But Jennifer recovers, and in her now-twisted, psychotic state, she begins to seek revenge on the men.Written by

In real life, the house where the rape takes place was owned by Meir Zarchi's friend Nouri Haviv, who was also director of photography on the film. Zarchi had visited his colleague when he was developing the script, and was influenced by its location. See more »

The BBFC passed a cut version of this film as an 18 certificate in November 2001 after removing 7 minutes from the 3 rape scenes. An alternate version - re-framed by the distributors and featuring the rape scenes though in a more obscure and off-screen way - was submitted in 2003, though the BBFC cut 41 seconds from the 2nd 'rock' rape because much of the errant thrusting was still visible. The uncut version was resubmitted for DVD in 2010 and, although some previous cuts were waived, 2 mins 54 secs of cuts were again made to the rape scenes. See more »
In summertime, the aspirant New Yorker writer Jennifer Hills (Camille Keaton) rents a lakeside cottage in the woods of the peaceful Park Hell Lane, Connecticut, to write her first novel during the vacation. A couple of days later, she is successively and brutally gang raped by three local bigoted rednecks and one retarded delivery boy from the supermarket. The humiliated and abused Jennifer does not report the sexual assault to the police and a couple of weeks later, she is physically recovered and has just plotted revenge against the rapists.
"Day of the Woman" is extremely realistic and violent; therefore the simple and scary story is absolutely credible. The unknown Camille Keaton has an amazing performance, especially in the impressive long sequence when she is repeatedly beaten and raped. However, this gore movie is only recommended for very specific audiences and prohibited to sensitive persons due to the savagery of most of the scenes. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "A Vingança de Jennifer" ("The Revenge of Jennifer")
