Rape Crisis Midwest say further education for men and boys is needed to suppress the threat of gender-based violence against women.

It comes as Reclaim These Streets demonstrations are set to take place in six cities this week, including Limerick and Galway.

They’re in solidarity with women in the UK, whose vigil for murdered woman Sarah Everard on Saturday was broken up by police.


Socialist feminist movement, ROSA, says the protests here will comply with social distancing, and attendees will be asked to wear masks.

Fundraising manager with Rape Crisis Midwest, Verena Tarpey, says gender-based violence is an issue that all of society is responsible for.
