A new report on sexual health has been published today. The research was carried out by the NUI Galway SMART consent research team in collaboration with their partners at four colleges.

The report titled ‘Are Consent Workshops Sustainable and Feasible in Third Level Institutions?’ involved over 3,500 students from across the country.

The findings through the report found that a third of Irish students think a woman can give consent to sex even after 14 pints or 3 bottles of wine.

That's one of the findings from a new report, which also shows 70% of women have been sexually harassed by the time they finish university.

The figure is 40% for men.

Ellen O' Malley Dunlop, Chairperson of the National Women's Council of Ireland, says action needs to be taken to deal with the issues raised in the report:

"We need to have national awareness-raising programmes about this, we really need to ensure that teachers in teacher training colleges are equipped to deliver sex education programmes in schools. We need parents to be able to talk to their children about relationship."
