This Dublin Woman Was Publicly Shamed About A Repeal The 8th T-Shirt – And Her Response Was Perfect

"A young woman like you shouldn't be wearing a t-shirt like that. It makes people uncomfortable"

Repeal New

A Dublin woman dared to wear a t-shirt in support of the Repeal the 8th campaign and found herself publicly confronted by someone who found her clothing offensive. 

But the woman, named Vanessa O'Sullivan, quickly put the man in his place...

Ever since Maser's Repeal the 8th mural was removed from the Project Arts Centre in Temple Bar there has been a surge in support of the movement that inspired it, which seeks to encouragement conversation about Irish legislation surrounding abortion.

If you'd like to get your hands on a Repeal the 8th t-shirt, they can be found on for €12 and The Hunreel Issues website for €15.
