Ireland Women Strip To Their Underwear To Protest Outside A Courtyard



Women Strip To Their Underwear To Protest 

It follows widespread outrage earlier this month when a defence barrister in a rape trial suggested the jury should consider the 17-year-old accuser’s “thong with a lace front” on the night of the incident.
The case in County Cork, in which the 27-year-old man was acquitted, was brought to wider attention last week when MP Ruth Coppinger held up a thong in Ireland’s parliament to show her anger with the handling of rape cases.

She said: “It might seem embarrassing to show a pair of thongs here… how do you think a rape victim or a woman feels at the incongruous setting of her underwear being shown in a court?”
Women across the world started sharing pictures of their underwear on social media using the hashtag: #ThisIsNotConsent.
