Louise O’Neill, author of Asking For It, debuted her documentary of the same name on RTE 2 last night and it gained a lot of positive attention.

The hour-long documentary followed on from Louise’s award-winning book, and provided viewers with some shocking statistics and stories about rape culture in Ireland, and the issue of consent.

The 31-year-old spoke to victims of sexual assault, students, legal professionals and activists during the documentary and gave the audience an incredible amount of knowledge on a matter that affects so many in Ireland.

Viewers took to Twitter last night to praise the programme, including a number of Irish celebrities such as Maia Dunphy, Bressie and Louise McSharry.
