Top definition
A character from the Netflix series (based on a book of the same name) "13 Reasons Why" who killed herself and left 7 cassette tapes with 13 recordings, each recording having a reason for why she killed herself, and each reason had to do with a person who did something wrong (this was worsened by the fact that Hannah Baker was a 16-year old high school student, and had to encounter them at school).

These reasons ranged from a lack of friends at times and episodes of sexual harassment, to bad dating experiences, witnessing a juvenile rape, and even being raped later on by the same perpetrator. Had all or some of these events not taken place, she might still be alive.

Hannah Baker is an example of the disturbing, tragic trend of teen suicide, a growing problem in both the US (the location in which the plot of the series takes place; more specifically, the fictional town of Evergreen, California) and worldwide. The character also addresses the issues of sexual assault, harrassment and bullying, issues that have also plagued education and its students, as well as the character.

Hannah Baker is played by Katherine Langford.

The .gif below depicts her in the show saying, "why didn't you say this when I was alive?"
"Hey, it's Hannah. Hannah Baker. That's right. Don't adjust your...whatever device you're hearing this on. It's me, live and in stereo." - Hannah Baker, as she spoke on the first tape in the series.

"I lied. Um, I did know Hannah Baker. We worked together all the time at the Crestmont. We had classes together. Uh- She was my friend. And I miss her really fucking bad." - Clay Jensen, another character in the series.

"Hey man, did you watch 13 Reasons Why?"
"Yeah, it was pretty sad. I feel sorry for Hannah Baker."

"I watched 13 Reasons Why last week, and Hannah Baker's suicide made me feel so sad."
