Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Paul Murphy (Dublin South West, RISE)
Will the Government act quickly to criminalise image-based sexual abuse and so-called revenge porn? As people may have seen, in the last number of days it has emerged that a group of men, it seems, collated thousands of pictures of over 500 women, apparently including some women under the age of 18, without their consent and shared them in a gross and disgusting abuse of those women. There is an online petition and campaign led by some of these brave women speaking out about this abuse. Over 25,000 people have signed it, calling for immediate action to criminalise image-based sexual abuse.
