UNBEFUCKINGLEAVABLE!!!
In the trial, the defence lawyer told the jury: "You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front." The 27-year-old man was found not guilty of rape shortly afterwards.

The controversy led one Irish MP to hold up a lace thong in parliament to highlight "routine victim-blaming". Ruth Coppinger produced the blue lacy underwear in the Dáil (Irish parliament) from her sleeve on Tuesday. "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?" What happened at the trial?

The case, in which the man was cleared of rape, was originally reported by the Irish Examiner newspaper on 6 November.

The accused maintained that the sexual contact between him and the girl, which took place in a laneway in Cork, had been consensual.

Details of the closing argument presented by his senior counsel Elizabeth O'Connell, however, attracted widespread attention and prompted a series of online protest movements. "Does the evidence out-rule the possibility that she was attracted to the defendant and was open to meeting someone and being with someone?" she asked, according to the Examiner's report. "You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front."
How did the protests start?

The day after publication of that court report, the head of Dublin's Rape Crisis Centre criticised the barrister's remarks .

Although she did not question the verdict, she called for reform of a legal system in which she said such suggestions were frequently made.

Amid increasing media attention, Irish social media users expressed outrage at the remarks in court.

Under the hashtag #ThisIsNotConsent, Irish women posted photographs of their underwear in all shapes, colours, and materials to protest the use of such techniques in court.

Many pointed to other countries which have tighter controls on what can be introduced in rape trials, and in what manner the jury can consider them.

Wise words by @nayyirah.waheed
Dear fellow artists: With the way @instagram increasingly restricts how people can view your work, and makes it at times feel like a total waste of time to even remain on social media, it’s more important than ever to TRUST YOUR WORK!!! Trust that what you do as an artist is more than being merely a ‘content creator’ you are SO MUCH MORE!! Concentrate on what it is that drove you to make art in the first place! The rest is noise!🖤

Blink and you might miss it. So chuffed to have a little part in this🖤

‘They’ say “you shouldn’t layer embroidery...” Well who are ‘they’ anyway 💁‍♀️

This is the respiratory mask i took home from last years visit to Vallejo/ San Fran Bay Area, and a permanent reminder on the wild Fires that were destroying so much land , livelihoods and subsequently lives then.
One year on, and the fires are ranging once more. My thoughts are with everybody effected by this. Fire, or any natural disaster for that matter are frighteningly destructive forces, that us europeans are mostly spared by,- so far.
I hope they can be controlled as soon as possible, and that people whose lives have been impacted, find the strength to go on🖤

General spaced feeling of astounded bewilderment today, at the growing incidents of domestic violence committed against female friends of mine and women in general. There is a very disturbing trend happening at the moment, and i will not tolerate it. On a broader level, there will be art happening that will deal with this, because if i can do one thing, it’s to make people talk about shit, and this is some ginormous SHIT!!! MEN take responsibility for your peers! Speak up! Get involved! Tell those sad excuses of a human being to get their shit together!
FAMILY MEMBERS: get involved! Don’t just stand there and watch on as it happens again and again and again!!! Protect women!!!! This is unacceptable, and while many women affected, stay quiet,- i will use my work, this page and my reach, to do the opposite!! That’s all for today🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Just over a week to go until you can grab your ‘CHEERS’ patch directly from @bloodygoodperiod supporting them with 100% of the proceeds!!!! I am so super happy with how this patch has turned out, it’s unreal!!!! Another way of getting your hands onto one, is by signing up for my next workshop at the @bureau_of_silly_ideas on the 25th of November, because this time only, everybody taking the workshop, will also receive this patch as part of it, plus- half of all proceeds will also go to @bloodygoodperiod !!!! How can you help you ask? •Get a ticket (or two)
•tell your friends •spread the word ( on your insta or any other social outlet)
BE part of making change happen!
I get that Christmas is coming up, and folks try to hold on to their money, but people don’t stop bleeding over Christmas, and besides learning a new skill, or honing an existing one, you will also leave with a little piece of art, that could be the perfect gift for a special someone ;) Head over to my website to grab your ticket♥️♥️♥️
