At a rape trial last week in County Cork, Ireland, the defendant's lawyer did something that outraged Irish women. And they have since responded with force.
According to the Irish Examiner, the lawyer, Elizabeth O'Connell, held up the accuser's underwear in court and said, "Does the evidence out-rule the possibility that she was attracted to the defendant and was open to meeting someone and being with someone? You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front."
O'Connell's victim-blaming struck a chord with women. Many quickly took to social media to share photos of their own underwear in solidarity, and to prove an important point about consent.
