RCNI calls on Government to meet human rights obligations by targeting alcohol consumption and attitudes towards alcohol and sex

RCNI Executive Director Fiona Neary commented; “As attitudes towards women, sex and alcohol, combined with consumption, demonstrate a relationship to decisions to carry out acts of sexual violence, there is an obligation on the Irish government to target alcohol consumption, particularly binge drinking, and alcohol-related attitudes that are facilitative of rape.
