Rallies Being Held In Solidarity With Rugby Rape Complainant
Rallies have been organised in cities around Ireland in solidarity with the complainant in the rugby rape trial.
All four men were acquitted yesterday, sparking debate on the public nature of the trial.
The trial has also led to conversations on the nature of consent, and the use of social media.
After yesterday's verdict, public reaction was swift, with calls and donations flooding in to rape crisis organisations and an outpouring of sympathy for the complainant.
