Thousands of people taken to the streets in cities around Ireland today calling for changes to how the criminal justice system handles rape cases.

Loud chants of 'I stand with her' and 'We stand together' could be heard ringing out from the hundreds of people who gathered today at Dublin's Spire.

Speakers at the rallies called for changes to the criminal justice system that would make women feel more comfortable in bringing rape cases forward to authorities.
