SlutWalk is a grassroots movement against rape culture's victim-blaming and slut-shaming; it has spread internationally. It all started when a Toronto officer advised women to "stop dressing like sluts in order to not be victimized." Since then, enraged activists have taken to the streets to declare that they are fed up with blaming the victim rather than the perpetrator.
It is NOT a walk that requires a certain type of clothing. You can wear whatever you want to this event. The people attending the event do not all agree on the idea of reappropriating the word slut; however, all who are against sexual violence and the culture that perpetuates it are encouraged to participate. It is a powerful march against rape culture and exposes the fact that the word "slut" and a woman's attire are used as weapons to demean a woman's sexual agency and make rape justifiable.
If you understood none of this, you're one of those idiots who thinks SlutWalks is all about prancing around half-nude.
I attended SlutWalk last week not because I want to dress up but because I want to expose rape culture.
