Minister of State for Education Josepha Madigan has spoken in the Dáil about being a survivor of sexual assault.  

We wanted to highlight the issue of sexual assault here in Ireland and chat about the importance of speaking out and whether more needs to be done to deal with the issue in this country.  

Ruth Maxwell was a victim of a sex attacker and she chatted to Andrea about her experience. Dr. Caroline West, outreach co-ordinator at active consent in NUIG, Host of Glow West podcast, Noleen Blackwell - CEO of Dublins Rape Crisis centre and Clare Austin, USI President also chatted to Andrea.
