Herefordshire women spread the #ThisIsNotConsent movement

Women from across Herefordshire have met outside the Shire Hall in Hereford to spread the #ThisIsNotConsent movement.

The demonstration took place at the Shire Hall on Sunday when around 20 protestors decorated railings outside the front of the Shire Hall in St Peters Square.

The demonstration was aimed at bringing the message of consent to Hereford after a recent court case that took place in the Republic of Ireland in which a man was acquitted of raping a 17 year old girl.

The story has gained publicity after comments made by the acquitted man’s lawyer suggested that the girl’s consent to sex had been implied by the style of underwear she was wearing at the time.
