This is not Consent

“This is Not Consent” acrylic, digital, photomontage and Adobe Photoshop

Elizabeth O’Connell was the defence lawyer of a man in Ireland accused of raping a 17 year old girl.
She told the jury: “You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front.” The man was acquitted of rape shortly afterwards.

It’s a little bit *yawn* to once again repeat “Clothes don’t cause rape, Rapists do.” but ffs we must carry on saying it as long as victim blaming exists.

In Ireland Catholicism still dominates sex education and societal attitudes .
