Today we’re giving major kudos to our friends in the fashion industry, Opsh, for a most memorable evening held at Dublin’s Button Factory where Louise O’Neill, author of the bestselling book Asking For I,t was joined by a panel of formidable and successful female influencers to talk not only about her compelling book, but the subject of consent, on which her novel is based. With conversations that are so important to be having, it wasn’t long before the book club event was trending. Following a panel discussion involving former IMAGE scribe Jeanne Sutton, Legless in Dublin journalist Louise Bruton and blogger Rosie Connolly, CEO of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre Ellen O’Malley-Dunlop took to the stage to discuss how far we’ve come in terms of consent, legislation around rape and sexual violence, the sentencing of said crimes and how far we’ve still to go.

If you haven’t yet sat down to read O’Neill’s book, which Ellen feels should become compulsory reading for both men and women, you need to hop to it. It’s difficult, it’s far from a barrel of laughs, but boy is it important.

Congrats to Opsh and those involved for raising their voices on something that will, shockingly, affect 1 in 5 women.

Browse our social shots above for a flavour of the evening, and the esteemed guests among the audience.
