A rape case in Ireland has sparked outrage after a teenager's thong was used to suggest consent. The man was acquitted after his defence barrister said the 17-year-old's lace-fronted thong implied she was open to having sex. Since the trial, hundreds of women have shared photographs of their own underwear in protest, and Irish MP Ruth Coppinger even held some in parliament to highlight the issue.
Ruth joins us live from Ireland this morning to express her anger at the “uneducated statements”, alongside rape survivor Leona O’Callaghan who is appalled that anyone would blame anyone else other than the rapists.
