#ThisIsNotConsent panties twitter trend

A twitter trend that began in Ireland has gone global. After an Irish man was acquitted of rape charges last week during a trial that centered on whether his 17-year-old accuser consented to their sexual encounter. During her closing remarks, the attorney for the accused, Elizabeth O’Connell, implored jurors to consider the way the child was dressed as evidence of her consent. Women took to the streets and twitter in a protest that’s now going viral with the hashtag #ThisIsNotConsent, and images of women’s underwear.
