It’s time for CHANGE.
Today marks the start of #CallThisOut, a new campaign with our stations and the Irish Sun. The campaign is born from the shock and pain in our nation after the tragic death of Ashling Murphy.

We will be using our megaphone to spread the message that enough is enough.
Enough to violence against women. Enough to the culture that contributes to it and enough to the seemingly harmless behaviour that plays a part in enabling some men to abuse women on any level. Harmless behaviour can be anything from a snigger at a sexist joke, a throw away comment about a woman’s image or a lewd look, right along the spectrum to a serious concern for safety.
Across our airwaves and social media we’ll be asking everyone – men and women, young and old – to call out any situation that makes a woman feel uncomfortable, disrespected, unequal, not to mention scared, threatened and endangered.
The goal is to spread an important message: It’s up to all of us to CALL THIS OUT.
It’s only when we all act together that we can make a meaningful change.
