CWASU undertook the research design, analysis and production of this report for Dublin Women’s Aid. It examines young peoples’ views on personal safety and danger; their encounters with interpersonal violence, committed both against themselves and against others known to them; their definitions of rape, sexual harassment and violence; safe and unsafe sex; the meaning of consent; contact with and attitudes to pornography, and young people’s support needs.
