Non-consensual sharing of nude photos
Over the last few days reports surfaced of a large scale leak of nude photos affecting a huge amount of Irish women.
Tens of thousands of photos of women and girls have been stored and shared across a number of different forums. It includes nude images of minors and images taken without consent.
This morning on Dublin Talks we spoke to Linda Hayden, founder of The Victims Alliance. They have been working tirelessly to identify and support victims of the leak.
We have unprecedented situation where we have become aware of a massive issue around image based crime. We have seen massive folders with thousands of images that have been taken and shared without consent of the person in the image. The scale of the problem is in tens of 1000s
