Wexford TD Verona Murphy says women should not have to hide in fear.
Speaking to Beat News, she says society needs to change so tragedy's like the death of Ashling Murphy do not happen again:
This week has seen an 'outpouring of grief' following the killing of the young schoolteacher in Tullamore on Wednesday.
"She did everything that was expected to be regarded as safe and she wasn't safe and I think society needs to have a good look at why that's the case and how we can change it going forward" said Murphy.
She believes society needs to be educated that violence against women is not tolerated:
"Nobody should be in fear and that has developed in the most recent years so something has changed in society. We need to educate society that crimes of this nature are wrong and will not go unpunished."
