ORGANISERS expect hundreds of Oxford University to students to take part in a 'this is not consent' protest with a twist tomorrow.

A 'lacy underwear flash' is due to take place just before 4pm today on Cornmarket Street, in protest at an Irish rape trial last Saturday, that saw a defence lawyer provide the victim’s thong as evidence with which to defend her client.

First year English Literature student Bryony Streets, who is organising the protest, said: "The main objective of the protest is to raise awareness of victim blaming and sexual assault in general.

"It is also timed to coincide with the centenary of women winning the right to vote."

The copycat protest follows a series of protests about sexual consent in Ireland, after a 27-year-old man was found not guilty of raping a 17-year-old.

The defence lawyer said: "You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front."

Tomorrow's event will start at 3.30pm with a short speech by Miss Streets, before the underwear flash and a series of poetry readings and members of the protest sharing their experiences and opinions.

A minute's silence will then be held.
